When Blake Edwards powerful film of J.P. Millers heartrending teleplay Days of Wine and Roses hit movie screens, it won critical raves and box-office success and shone brightly as a career highlight for its two Oscar-nominated stars, Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick, who play a couple caught in alcoholisms web. A San Francisco public-relations hotshot is a social drinkerwho never stops socializing. His vivacious wife starts drinking to keep him company. They live for good times. But eventually good times turn bad. Days of Wine and Roses earned a total of five Academy Award nominations and a 1962 Best Song Oscar for its haunting Henry Mancini/Johnny Mercer title tune. A poignant, harrowing portrait of human lives at their lowest, it also reflects filmmaking at its height.
