‘Odd Couple’ concludes Lemmon matinee series


C—Spotlight—OddCoupleJoin librarian and film enthusiast Doug Swiszcz for the final installment of  “A Slice of Lemmon”, his summer matinee movie series celebrating the comedic side of actor Jack Lemmon. “The Odd Couple”, the 1968 film adaptation of Neil Simon’s hit Broadway play, closes out the series. The movie centers around two friends, one divorced, the other recently separated, whose decision to live together is thwarted by their incompatibility. Lemmon’s comedic skills bring to life “neat freak” Felix Ungar’s bundle of neuroses, while Walter Matthau’s portrayal of sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison makes full use of his trademark craggy face and hangdog expression. The movie is probably the best known pairing of these two legendary actors, although they co-starred in nine films during their careers.
