    Description

    The Apartment (United Artists, 1960). Autographed Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    In an attempt to climb the corporate ladder, Bud Baxter (Jack Lemmon) hits on a scheme to make his apartment available to company executives as a place to take their mistresses. Of course, Baxter soon becomes embroiled in complications from this sordid scheme. The film won five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director (Billy Wilder). Offered here is a beautiful lobby card signed by Wilder and two of the stars, Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine. It has also been signed by co-star Jack Kruschen, seen on the card as "Dr. Dreyfuss." This highly desirable piece is from the collection of Artie Kern, who was the A/V man to Oscar winning songwriter Sammy Cahn for many years. Kern was also Memorabilia Consultant to the Songwriters Hall of Fame Museum in New York City, and many of his items were on display there from 1980-1985, when the museum closed its doors. Sammy Cahn helped Mr. Kern obtain the autographs, as he was president of the hall for over 17 years and almost all of the signatures came from his personal friends. A wonderful piece, which is boldly signed by the four personalities, it has small pin or puncture marks in three places in the outer edges of the image, and there are several very small pinholes in the upper border. This will be a great addition to any collection. Fine+.
