It is the definitive movie on alcoholism. Lee Remick is just as great. You gotta see it, man.

Oh yes. I did turn it on in the middle of it once. Only watched a few minutes because I hate not seeing a movie from the beginning. But, just from the few minutes I saw, Lemmon's performance was amazing. Didn't he win the Oscar for that role?

No, never seen it, Steve. But thanks for the tip!

Speaking of a businessman down on his luck, how about FALLING DOWN with Michael Douglas?? Man! What an intense flick!

Yes...Douglas had that crew cut and the short-sleeve shirt that was a bit too small....and Robert Duvall was the guy that was going to bring him in...
