"A study in excellence which most 'adult' opera and theatre companies would be pushed to emulate." (Glasgow Herald)
Life in mid-19th-century London was harsh for the poor, and especially for poor children. This fast-moving musical tells the story of Joe and Annie Cooper, two of the 'ragged children' struggling to survive, and the many characters who both help and seek to harm them. The musical score is based largely on popular 19th-century songs.
The 16th Annual AFI Life Achievement Award, presented in a tribute from Hollywood to this popular actor, the recipient of eight Academy award nominations, opens a special Christmas season of his films. Introduced by Julie Andrews with contributions from
Walter Matthau, Billy Wilder, Roddy McDowall, Janet Leigh, Blake Edwards, Garson Kanin, Neil Simon, Steve Martin and Kevin Spacey (who co-starred with Lemmon in "A Long Day's Journey into Night"), as well as a special rendition of "I've Got a Crush on You" by Shirley Maclaine.
The programme also contains extracts from his many popular films, including "Some Like It Hot", "The Apartment", "The Odd Couple", "Irma La Douce", "Mr Roberts", "It Should Happen to You", "The Days of Wine and Roses" and "That's Life".
Walter Matthau. Chicago, 1929: the imminent hanging of Earl Williams, a confused anarchist, could prove to be a considerable election boost for the mayor and sheriff and the hottest story since the St Valentine's Day Massacre. When Hildy Johnson, the Examiner's star reporter, decides on the eve of the execution to quit his job for marriage and a safe position in an advertising agency, he finds making the break from his scheming editor, Walter Burns, even more difficult than he had imagined.
Written by BILLY WILDER and i. A. L. DIAMOND Based on the play by BEN HECHT and CHARLES MACARTHUR Produced by PAUL MONASH Directed by BILLY WILDER
