JACK LEMMON. Typescript signed: "Jack Lemmon". 1p, 8½x11. Los Angeles, California, 1989 April 25. Quotation from an interview with "The Los Angeles Times". In full: "In my opinion, acting is basically a mental process of uncovering why a character says or does something. Once you know what motivates him, the next step is showing the audience something you've already found out. And the greatest thing for any actor is to reach the point where you're not afraid to expose yourself, no matter how risky it seems." A private school-educated everyman who could play outrageous comedy and wrenching tragedy, Jack Lemmon (1925-2001) burst onto the movie scene as a 1950s Columbia contract player and remained a beloved star until his death. Whether through humor or pathos, he excelled at illuminating the struggles of average men against a callous world; as director Billy Wilder once noted, "There was a little bit of genius in everything he did." Lemmon won the 1955 Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his role as Ensign Pulver in Mister Roberts.He also won the1973 Academy Award for Best Actorfor portraying garment manufacturer Harry Stoner in Save the Tiger.Lemmon received Best Actor Oscar nominations for Some Like It Hot, The Apartment, Days of Wine and Roses, The China Syndrome, Tribute and Missing.
