Synopsis: Together, Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau put the fun in dysfunctional, working jointly in 11 memorable, often classic, cinematic pairings. At odds onscreen, the two become best friends off a friendship that enhanced every frame of film they appeared in side by side. Jack & Walter follows the intersection of Lemmon and Matthau s careers, starting in 1966 with their first screen-pairing in The Fortune Cookie and continuing through their last laugh filled romp in The Odd Couple II in 1998. With Lemmon representing America's favorite everyman and Matthau characterizing the beloved grouchy brother-in-law, the dynamic duo made millions of moviegoers smile every time the two appeared in darkened theatres across the nation if not the world. Though both had remarkable solo careers, together their work cemented their positions in Hollywood history as the last great comedy team of the 20th Century. In recognition of the pair's remarkable cinematic achievements, author Ben Costello who became their life-long fan after meeting Lemmon on two memorable occasions and corresponding with Matthau produced this memorable testament to the friends who made each motion picture come alive. With complete biographies of both Lemmon and Matthau, full credits and storylines for all 11 films, more than 100 publicity and behind-the-scenes photographs, and memories from co-workers and co-stars including some of Hollywood's biggest stars, Jack & Walter: The Films Of Lemmon & Matthau will be a favorite for fans and historians alike.
