Billy Wilder was ever-so witty
With a style that's both clever and gritty
But he made Buddy Buddy
Rather staid, fuddy-duddy
His reviled last endeavor, a pity.
Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau star in Billy Wilder's final film, Buddy Buddy (1981). The Late Show: The Late Films Blogathon runs all week at David Cairns' Shadowplay, celebrating late films by great filmmakers.
