Performers, Cast and Crew:
Kim Novak, Fred Astaire, and Pink Panther-writer Blake Edwards collaborate with legendary and seminal comic actor Jack Lemmon in this collection of five of his most heralded hits from the 1950s and ‘60s: OPERATION MAD BALL, THE NOTORIOUS LANDLADY, UNDER THE YUM YUM TREE, GOOD NEIGHBOR SAM, and PHFFFT! Also included in this set is JACK LEMMON: THE MAN BEHIND THE MAGIC, a two-part biographical documentary created by Jack's son, Chris Lemmon.
Eminently versatile, two-time Oscar® winner Jack Lemmon (Save the Tiger [Best Actor], 1973; Mr. Roberts [Best Supporting Actor], 1955) was an actor's actor - the sort who made it look easy as he lit up the screen in everything from powerful dramas to irresistible comedies. Now for the first time on DVD are five of his best-loved Columbia comedy classics, along with a must-see bonus disc hosted by Jack's son and biographer, Chris Lemmon. This disc features intimate interviews with friends and colleagues plus never-before-seen personal photos. Included in this exclusive collection are Phffft!, featuring Kim Novak with a script by George Axelrod (Breakfast at Tiffany's); Operation Mad Ball and The Notorious Landlady featuring Fred Astaire, both co-written by Blake Edwards (The Pink Panther); and, from writer/ director David Swift (Pollyanna), Under the Yum Yum Tree and Good Neighbor Sam. It's pure comic gold - with a twist of Lemmon!
