Avanti (1972) - Jack Lemmon DVD
In this hilarious, lighthearted comedy from acclaimed writer/director Billy Wilder and screenwriter I.A.L. Diamond (The Apartment), a wealthy American discovers romance and the meaning of avanit while in Italy. Nominated for six Golden Globes - winning one - this "honey of a film" (Boxoffice) is as delightful as the Wilder/Diamond/Jack Lemmon classics Some Like it Hot and Irma La Douce!
American businessman Wendell Armbruster (Lemmon) is summoned to Italy after a car accident claims the lives of his father and his father's secret mistress! And when the mistress' daughter (Juliet Mills) also arrives - and the bodies of both of their parents disappear - the two instant foes are brought together in a baffling mystery... and an affair of the heart!
