Love and Loneliness in Classic Cinema
Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine in The Apartment (1960)
Baxter: You know I used to live like Robinson Crusoe? Shipwrecked among 8 million people. Then one day I saw a footprint in the sand, and there you were. It’s a wonderful thing, dinner for two.
Fran: Do you usually eat alone?
Baxter: No no, sometimes I have dinner with Ed Sullivan. Sometimes Dinah Shore, Perry Como. The other night I had dinner with Mae West. Of course, she was much younger then. Cheers.
