PORTRAIT

One of the very finest performers of his generation. There wasn't many things Jack Lemmon couldn't do when it came to acting, and he did it head down, in the utmost professional manner. Lemmon became a star without the classic star power. First mainly in comedic roles, but later in his career turning in some of the very best dramatic turns ever captured on screen. Lemmon was one of the most popular and well-liked figures in the business. Often seen coupled with his long-time companion Walter Matthau.
