When Bud again takes responsibility for Fran's actions, Karl punches him. Fran kisses Bud for not revealing her affair with Sheldrake and, sensing that she now cares for him, Bud smiles and says it "didn't hurt a bit.
Sheldrake rewards Bud with a further promotion, and fires Miss Olsen for what she told Fran. However, Miss Olsen retaliates by telling Sheldrake's wife, who promptly throws him out. Sheldrake moves into a room at his athletic club, but now figures that he can string Fran along while he enjoys his newfound bachelorhood. But when Sheldrake asks Bud for the key to the apartment, Bud refuses, quitting the firm.
She finally realizes that Bud is the man who truly loves her. She runs to his apartment, but at the door, she hears a loud noise like a gunshot. Fearing he has attempted suicide again, Fran pounds on the door until Bud opens it, holding an overflowing bottle of champagne which was the source of the noise. Bud has been packing, planning to find a new job and a new home, but is surprised and delighted to see her. Fran insists on resuming their gin rummy game, telling Bud that she is now free as well.
He declares his love for her, and she replies lovingly, "Shut up and deal. Diamond wished to make another film with Jack Lemmon. The initial concept for the film came from Brief Encounter by Noël Coward , in which Celia Johnson has an affair with Trevor Howard in his friend's apartment. However, due to the Hays Production Code , Wilder was unable to make a film about adultery in the s.
Wilder and Diamond also based the film partially on a Hollywood scandal in which high-powered agent Jennings Lang was shot by producer Walter Wanger for having an affair with Wanger's wife, actress Joan Bennett. During the affair, Lang used a low-level employee's apartment. Although Wilder generally required his actors to adhere exactly to the script, he allowed Jack Lemmon to improvise in two scenes: In one scene he squirts a bottle of nasal spray across the room, and in another, he sings while cooking spaghetti which he strains through the grid of a tennis racket.
In another scene, where Lemmon was supposed to mime being punched, he failed to move correctly, and was accidentally knocked down. Wilder chose to use the shot of the genuine punch in the film. Lemmon also caught a cold when one scene on a park bench was filmed in sub-zero weather. Art director Alexandre Trauner used forced perspective to create the set of a large insurance company office. The set appeared to be a very long room full of desks and workers; however, successively smaller people and desks were placed to the back of the room, ending up with children.
He designed the set of Baxter's apartment to appear smaller and shabbier than the spacious apartments that usually appeared in films of the day. He used items from thrift stores and even some of Wilder's own furniture for the set. The film's title theme, written by Charles Williams and originally titled "Jealous Lover", was first heard in the film The Romantic Age.
According to Fred MacMurray, after the film's release, he was accosted by women in the street who berated him for making a "dirty filthy movie", one of them hitting him with her purse.
According to the behind-the-scenes feature on the American Beauty DVD, the film's director, Sam Mendes , had watched The Apartment among other classic American films as inspiration in preparation for shooting his film. Within a few years after The Apartment' s release, the routine use of black-and-white film in Hollywood had ended.
Schindler's List and The Artist In , The Apartment was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. In , a poll of film directors conducted by Sight and Sound magazine listed the film as the 14th greatest film of all time tied with La Dolce Vita. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
