YMMV: The Apartment
  • Award Snub: Oddly, despite having the dominant supporting part in the film, MacMurray wasn't nominated by the Academy for his performance, with the Academy instead acknowledging Jack Kruschen in the minor (though still entertaining) role of Dr. Dreyfuss.
  • Comedy Ghetto: Managed to break out and win Best Picture (though it's more of a comedy-drama).
  • Tom Hanks Syndrome: Fred MacMurray was mostly known for comic roles until Billy Wilder cast him against type in Double Indemnity and The Apartment. MacMurray reckoned these were his best performances.
  • The Woobie: both the lead characters, C.C. and Fran.
