Film: The Fortune Cookie

The Fortune Cookie is a 1966 comedy directed by Billy Wilder, co-starring Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, and Ron Rich. In it, CBS cameraman Harry Hinkle (Lemmon) is injured when Cleveland Browns player Luther "Boom Boom" Jackson (Ron Rich) collides with him. His injuries are slight, but fast-talking attorney "Whiplash Willie" Gingrich (Matthau, who won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar) sees the chance for a big settlement if Harry exaggerates them. Following is a comedy of deception mixed with the drama of remorse, as Hinkle sees the effects the con has on the guilt-ridden player.
