Jack Lemmon

Jack Lemmon s-a născut într-un lift din orașul Newton statul Massachusetts, o suburbie a Bostonului, unde tatăl său era președintele unei companii de gogoși. După ce a urmat Academia Phillips și Universitatea Harvard, Lemmon s-a înrolat în Marina Militară a Statelor Unite. După terminarea stagiului militar, a început să lucreze ca actor în teatru, radio si televiziune.

Debutul pe marele ecran l-a avut într-un rol episodic în filmul din 1949 The Lady Takes a Sailor, dar nu a fost remarcat până la debutul oficial alături de Judy Holliday în It Should Happen to You din 1954.

A devenit unul din actorii preferați ai regizorului Billy Wilder, jucând în filmele sale Unora le place jazz-ul (Some Like It Hot), Apartamentul (The Apartment), Irma La Douce și Avanti.

Lemmon a fost primul actor care a obținut premiul Oscar atât pentru "Cel mai bun actor in rol principal" cât și pentru "Cel mai bun actor în rol secundar". A primit Oscarul pentru rol secundar în filmul Mister Roberts (1955), iar pentru rol principal în filmul Salvați tigrul (Save The Tiger) din (1973). A fost de asemenea nominalizat la Premiul Oscar pentru cel mai bun actor pentru rolurile sale din Unora le place jazz-ul (1959) (Some Like It Hot), The Apartment (1960) (Apartamentul), Days of Wine and Roses (1962) (Vin și trandafiri), The China Syndrome (1979) (Sindromul), Tribute(1980) (Tributul) și controversatul Missing (Disparut)1982. În 1988 a fost distins cu "Lifetime Achievement Award" (Premiul pentru întreaga carieră) din partea AFI (American Film Institute -- Institutul American de Film).

Ultimul film în care a jucat Jack Lemmon a fost The Legend of Bagger Vance (Legenda lui Bagger Vance), regizat de Robert Redford și prezentat in cinematografe în anul 2000.
