Labor Film Series | Holidays. C. C. Baxter learns that getting a key to the executive washroom is not worth lending his apartment key to colleagues for their trysts: “Mr. Dobisch; Mr. Kirby, Thursday; Mr. Eichelberger, Friday; Mr. Vanderhof, Wednesday. Mr. Sheldrake, Mondays and Thursdays.” Included on many best film lists, this classic holiday movie—its story takes place over Christmas/New Year’s—features glorious performances by Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine, and Fred MacMurray and a sparkling script and vibrant direction by Billy Wilder.
