C. C. Baxter, minion in a New York insurance firm, rises because he is willing to loan his apartment to married senior executives so they can tryst with their mistresses. Though he wins promotion by accommodating big shot Sheldrake, he is uncomfortable with the arrangement because he has a yen for Sheldrake’s bit on the side, Fran Kubelik.
Absolutely brilliant. It’s funnier, sadder and cooler on the big screen.
