Movie Info

Clothing manufacturer Harry Stoner (Jack Lemmon) mourns the loss of his youthful idealism even as he seals his fate by arranging to have an arsonist (Thayer David) torch his faltering factory for the insurance settlement. Stoner's conflicts with himself, his business partner (Jack Gilford), his distant wife (Patricia Smith) and a demanding client (Norman Burton) boil over during a nightmarish presentation at a fashion show, while a free-spirited hippie girl (Laurie Heineman) offers escape.

    A tour de force for Lemmon. Consider this to be a bridge between the early great comedic work and the really marvelous dramatic work of his later career.

    Set fire to the factory. Supply women for the clients. Harry Stoner will do anything to get one more season.

    The greatest performance ever given by an actor and Jack Lemmon delivers this in his breathtaking Oscar winning role. One of the top ten best films of 1973.
