THE FORTUNE COOKIE (1966) (SPECIAL PROMOTION) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Ron Rich, Judi West, Cliff Osmond, Lurene Tuttle, Marge Redmond
Directed By:  Billy Wilder
Composed By:  Andre Previn

“A fine, dark, gag-filled hallucination, peopled by dropouts from the Great Society…an explosively funny live-action cartoon about petty chiselers who regard the economic system as a giant pinball machine, ready to pay off to anyone who tilts it properly.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times

“Producer-director-writer Billy Wilder presents in The Fortune Cookie another bittersweet comedy commentary on contemporary US mores. Generally amusing (often wildly so)…the pic is pegged on an insurance fraud in which Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau are the conspirators.”
– Variety

Director Billy Wilder, pairing for the seventh time with writing partner I.A.L. Diamond, brings us the blackest of black comedy in The Fortune Cookie (1966). The tale focuses on the travails of a TV cameraman (Jack Lemmon) who is injured while shooting a sporting event, and then inveigled into an insurance scam by his brother-in-law, the infamous Whiplash Willie (Walter Matthau). Matthau snagged a well-earned Best Supporting Actor Oscar® for his indelible comic performance.
