This comedy satire was directed by Billy Wilder, from a script he wrote with I.A.L. Diamond, and saw the first screen pairing of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. Lemmon plays Harry Hinkle, a news cameraman who is knocked over while covering a football game and subsequently rushed to hospital. Matthau plays Whiplash Willie, Hinkle's brother-in-law, an unscrupulous lawyer who knows an opportunity when he sees one and tries to persuade Hinkle to fake injury and sue for a million dollars. Hinkle agrees, but will he be able to keep up the pretence? Matthau collected a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance.

I originally purchased this on the sadly dying Laserdisc format, but migrated when released on DVD for the convenience of not having to wrestle with 2 old disks and four sides. Think MGM have used the very same print for this issue as the minor imperfections in an otherwise superb image appear identical. Just go and buy it and immerse yourself in the fun, not sure why anyone would find the characters annoying, or feel that the film does not really go anywhere. The story finally returns full circle after closure of the failed scam to reveal both of the unwitting participants acting out the introduction, on the same playing field, this time with a small audience of somewhat bemused janitors and not thousands excited sports fans! GREAT STUFF!
