Jack Lemmon: RIP

It's been 9 years since Jack Lemmon's death on June 27, 2001. He died from bladder cancer. I recently watched Days of Wine and Roses (1962), where he played an alcoholic married to a woman who he in turn transforms into an alcoholic. The performances by both Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick were magnificent. I felt terrible for the characters because they were struggling so much with their addiction to alcohol. I love how Jack could play both serious characters and comedic ones so well. Rest in peace!
