Jack Lemmon's formidable talent and craft included his range: he could do drama and comedy with equal success. Filmmakers took notice and cast him in so many different kinds of roles that Lemmon's great versatility became part of his appeal among audiences: when we're down and want to feel understood or gain insight, we can watch one of his dramas; when we're down and want to be distracted and laugh, we can cheer up with one of his comedies. No matter what life gives you, there's a Jack Lemmon film to help. Which of his performances have you most appreciated?

I am waiting for one photo to be approved and am still deciding on which image to use for 'The Apartment.' Suggestions welcome, of course. Thank you!

Amazing poll Ruby! He's one of my favorite actors ever; so much of who he was as an individual was on full display for so many of his roles. I'd go with his role as CC Baxter in The Apartment but man, he was good in everything. Well done on an awesome idea - the guy really needed his own poll

Thanks, Kyle. He's also one of my favorite actors and he was my Dad's big favorite. What you said about who he was, as a person, being on display in so many of his performances is such a great observation. 'How true and I really liked that about him, as well. He seemed so down-to-earth, humble, and honorable; that was certainly his reputation. 

Oh, and thank you, too, for the great emoticons! I miss those from the old poll board. :-)  (And I have to figure out how to use them, lol.)
