    My mom named me after Lee Remick’s character, but pronounced it KEER-sten. I Don’t think she knew at the time how intention/words/names carry such power. I am sober now but experienced a lot of pain, being married to an alcoholic and learning his ways.

    I revisited this movie from 1962, in which Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick give two of the greatest performances ever. It is a grim portrait of alcoholism and what happens to people when they come to love booze as much or more than they love each other. I saw this movie when I was 17. It is more real to me now.

    IMHO, truly one THE greatest films of the 60’s. It’s harsh, stark, & unflinching–& magnificent. Both actors should have won Oscars !      Wolfsky9, 67 y/o

    This will always be one of the great moments in American cinema. What it captures is beyond understanding, unless you have experienced it.

    Lee Remick should’ve won the Academy Award for this performance. Lemmon was great but his antics in the green house with the potted plants was a little too over-the-top. The final scene breaks my heart every time.

    I recall seeing this movie when it first came out. Jack Lemmon is dead. Hank Mancini, who supplied the title music, is dead. So sad.

    Ironic that he’s promoting a film about alcohol addiction while holding a lit cigarette that shows his real-life tobacco addiction.

    I watched this film for the first time a year ago its great! It has not aged as much as you might think.   – I found it because the music theme by  Henry Mancini hit the charts and i was looking through the  music charts to find good instrumental music (which is sadly gone from the charts today)

    As an almost 12 year sober alcoholic, I watch this movie with a different perspective. Yes, some of the scenes are a bit over the top, but the basic message is there. I was scared to quit, but I was also scared of the consequences of not quitting. After relapsing 3 times, I finally got the message and got the help. I do not attend as many meetings as I should, but what I have learned and how I live, and the resources I have, I keep the beast at bay. If you feel you have a drinking problem, you might just have one. Please, get help. It could just save your life and the lives of others.
