Billy Wilder directs this first-time pairing of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau in a brilliant comedy in which a larcenous lawyer convinces his brother-in-law to perpetrate insurance fraud. Jack Lemmon portrays Harry Hinkle, a TV cameraman who gets injured by a very considerate player while working a Cleveland Browns football game. Walter Matthau is the devious lawyer Willie Gingrich, who encourages the expensive lawsuit. Co-written by Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond, the film garnered an Oscar for Matthau.
