Overview

In this addiction melodrama, Joe Clay (Jack Lemmon), a promising adman, meet his future wife Kirsten (Lee Remick) at a party. Once married, the pressures of his business lead Joe to seek solace in liquor. Kirsten joins him in his nocturnal drinking sessions, and before long both are confirmed alcoholics. After several frightening episodes, Joe is able to shake the habit thanks to AA, but Kirsten finds it impossible to get through the day without liquor. The two split up, although Joe clings to the hope that someday he and Kirsten will be reunited, if for no reason other than the sake of their young daughter. J.P. Miller adapted the screenplay from his own 1958 Playhouse 90 television script. Though nominated in several categories, Days of Wine and Roses won only the Best Song Oscar for Henry Mancini's title tune.

A movie by and for adults (a refreshing change) 'Days' is one of the most realistic depictions of addiction ever recorded on celluloid. Lee Remick is heartbreaking as the country girl overwhelmed by the big city, who Lemmon cajoles into drinking with him when he gets home at night. Not wanting to let him loose on the bar scene, she gives in, and becomes more addicted than he. When she goes to a cheap motel with another man because Lemmon can no longer drink with her, then calls him to save her, I was in tears. When she pleads with him to let her back in the house with their daughter, having managed to stay sober for over a week, his choice is excruciating. Blake Edwards wasted his career with Pink Panther and Julie Andrews movies; for a brief time, he was one of Hollywood's best dramatic directors
