A Tribute to Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon

Walter Matthau (/ˈmæθaʊ/) born Walter John Matthow; October 1, 1920 – July 1, 2000) was an iconic American actor nominated for an Academy Award three times, winning once. He starred in at least 54 films.
Jack Lemmon, born John Uhler Lemmon III (February 8, 1925 – June 27, 2001), was also an iconic American actor and musician who was nominated for an Academy Award eight times, winning twice. He starred in over 60 films.

Obviously, each of these actors were legends in their own right. However, when they worked together, their chemistry created movie magic never seen before nor since.

They showed how well they worked together in the 1971 film Kotch, the only movie that Lemmon ever directed; Matthau was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar for his performance.

This Playlist is dedicated to one of Hollywood’s most popular comedic duos.
