Up among Edwards’ best films—adapted by JP Miller from his own teleplay—is this compassionate yet unsparing depiction of addiction and co-dependency, wrenchingly enacted by Remick and Jack Lemmon as the couple who court, marry, and drink; both actors deservedly received Oscar, Golden Globe, and BAFTA nominations. Core Edwards collaborators on hand include composer Henry Mancini, whose title song (with Johnny Mercer’s lyrics) won the Oscar.
