Storyline: Joe Clay is a top-notch public relations man. Anything a client wants Joe can arrange for them, whether it be dancing girls or an article in a prominent magazine. Part of the job however is drinking and Joe's ability to consume alcohol seems boundless. When he meets the very pretty Kirsten Arnasen, she prefers chocolate to alcohol but Joe has a solution to that in the form of a Brandy Alexander (made up of brandy and creme de cocoa). They eventually marry but their love is insufficient to prevent them from the downward spiral that alcohol brings to them. They try desperately to break the habit but continually relapse until only one of them manages to break free.

Misery Loves Company
Days of Wine and Roses was originally a live broadcast original drama from Playhouse 90 and starred Cliff Robertson and Piper Laurie. Both they and the drama got great critical reviews, but sad to say they were not considered any kind of box office, so when the film version was done, Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick were cast instead.

I've seen both versions and I'd hate to say which is the better. In terms of casting the part of Joe Clay fits right in with Lemmon's Mr. Average man roles. Imagine his character of C.C. Baxter if instead of taking his doctor's advice and becoming a mensch, gave in and turned to drink. That's what you have in Joe Clay.

Misery does love company, the most miserable drinkers are the solitary ones. Lemmon's job in public relations occasionally calls for him to supply some lady friends for his boss's party. So who could blame him when he mistakes Lee Remick, his boss Jack Albertson's new secretary for one of the hired bimbos.

Naturally the uptight Ms. Remick resents it at first, but she sure does warm up to him and eventually joins him in his boozing. They even marry and have a daughter.

The rest of the film is their joint descent into alcoholism and the effort of one who eventually joins Alcoholics Anonymous to help the other who simply won't be helped.

Charles Bickford repeats his role from the original Playhouse 90 broadcast and is a stern father figure for Remick who can't see why his own sternness may have helped drive her to Lemmon and booze. Look also for a very good performance by Jack Klugman as the counselor from Alcoholics Anonymous.

Remick and Lemmon were both nominated for Best Actress and Actor, but lost to Anne Bancroft and Gregory Peck respectively. Days of Wine and Roses did win an Oscar for Best Song with the title tune for the film. Andy Williams sold quite a few vinyl platters in his day with his version and their are good versions of the song by both Frank Sinatra and Tony Martin.

Days of Wine and Roses is still a powerful drama about the terrible evil of substance abuse. It hasn't lost anything in 46 years, in fact I'm willing to bet we may see a version for the new millenia.

A tremendous film that will leave a lasting impression.
I had always thought that Jack Lemmon was one of our finest actors and this film is another showcase for him. Lee Remick is excellent also as her beauty sometimes overshadowed her acting abilities.This film grips you and the scene in the greenhouse will stagger you. It is not an optimistic film, but it does show the reality of alcoholism. It really can knock people for a loop if you are not prepared for a dose of realism.

A disturbing and deep look into the destructive nature of alcoholism
With an actual budget and the ability to move around, the second version of this film proved to be a cinematic masterpiece. Jack Lemmon was exceptional as Joe Clay, a performance that was worthy of an Oscar. Clearly, this film was far superior to the original, mainly because of the depth the cinematography and sets added to the story. While the original was good, this proved how creative a filmmaker can be with a little more space and money. A strong film to say the least.

Essential!!
Let me tell you something: to watch such an intense and heart-rending performance like Jack Lemmon's in "Days of wine and roses" is one of those exceptional things we bump into our lives. OK, Lee Remick does an outstanding job, but Lemmon's performance is simply supernatural. We got Picasso's "Gernika", Bowie's "Ziggy stardust", Wilde's "Dorian Gray"... and characters such as Joe Clat. Pieces of art, my friends.

Most of the people link the name of Blake Edwards to the high class comedy ("Breakfast at Tiffany's", "Pink Panther", "The Party"), but I'd dare to state that "Days of.." is his best movie by far. Step by step, Edwars shows us each and every stages an alcoholic gets through: from the party days to the "delirium tremens".

Ageless, universal, perfect... ESSENTIAL

*My rate: 10/10

Comedic artisans creating bleak drama
Blake Edwards has directed great comedies and Jack Lemmon is considered one of the leading comic stars of all time, but they most definitely teamed up to give us bleak drama this time around. The feel that each have for comedy enhances the film immeasurably. There are scenes, such as the bouquet's flowers being snipped off without the drunk Lemmon noticing, that at first seem funny and then have a sobering effect on the viewer. Through the comedic influence we become painfully aware that drunkenness isn't funny.

And then there is the tragic irony well emphasized in the script. The non-drinking Remick eventually becomes a drinker in order to keep him and then he sobers up and has to choose between staying sober or keeping her.

This is too bleak and grimly realistic a film to be true entertainment, but it is the ability of Edwards and Lemmon to entertain which turns this into a truly important and effective film.

Best movie about co-dependent/destructive love, alcoholism & detox
What a performance by Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick! If you are not an alcoholic or drug addict, it may be hard to understand addiction, how it can sneak up and take over. This movie also shows how easy it is to fall after going sober, the difficulty choosing between the high road of sobriety, and the intense pull of drugs or alcohol AND loving the wrong person too much. I only wish it could have shown more of the intensity of withdrawals/detox symptoms - maybe it would deter people from drinking & drugs. As a nurse, I have seen so many people going through detox. It makes me terrified of having more than 1 drink per month. As a close friend or family member of an addict - we see all the ugly terrors of any chemical abuse. Watch this movie (and consider watching it with your teenagers) - it is reality and unfortunately, too much of a possibility for many.

Lemmon and Remick are Oscar-worthy.
It starts like some kind of sophisticated sex comedy, and a beautifully written and acted one at that, before turning into what is possibly the American cinema's most harrowing study of what it's like to be an alcoholic. When he directed "Days of Wine and Roses" Blake Edwards had already established a reputation as a fine director of comedy but this was an altogether different ball-game.

Fundamentally it was an actor's piece and Edwards had two of the best. As the young couple who become totally dependent on booze Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick turned in Oscar-worthy performances, (they were nominated), and the film was brave enough not to have an entirely happy ending, (nor does it ever slip entirely into melodrama). It has also stood the test of time better than many other American pictures of the time. Superb.

The DULL days of WHINING and SELF-INDULGENT POSES!
I had heard of the "rave" reviews this film gets, but never seen the production until a few nights ago. I could not disagree more w/ all the favorable reviews. This movie starts of well ... w/ a Billy Wilder-feel to it and I was expecting major stuff, but then ten minutes into the film we as an audience are supposed to buy hook, line & sinker that a morally responsible, smart-head-on-her-shoulders woman like Lee Remick's character would instantly change her confident and correct opinion of the slimy Lemmon character and 'voila' accept his dinner invitation! PUHLEASE!!!! that one improbable, implausible action RUINS the entire rest of the movie.

It's like the mid-film scene in Tom Cruise's M:I 2 when the Thandie Newton character who up-to-that moment is a realistic, opportunistic thief then suddenly sacrifices herself to "save" Cruise's Ethan Hawk by injecting a poison into her arm! It really irks me as a screenwriter to witness the little respect so-called major film-makers have for audiences that they assume we will accept highly implausible character about-faces for the sake of advancing their lame script's lame premise.

Back to this turkey, another point of contention I have with the story is (assuming the audience accepts and goes along w/ Remick's character's totally implausible about-face regarding even being seen w/ Lemmon's slime-ball PR man) then we have to endure a constant and strong misogynist attitude whereby Remick's value-driven woman becomes this hopeless WEAK alcoholic while Lemmon's despicable Joe Clay morphs into the STRONG hero of the story as he valiantly marches off to AA meetings. I found this truly offensive to all women, and I'm a woman-loving man, and worse just further evidence of the writer's conceit w/ respect to what they can throw at the audience.

Overall, this film plays like some afternoon soap (which I remember my cousin always watched) with truly non-sensical scenes like Remick's "accidental" burning of the furniture, Lemmon's show-up-at work when he wants attitude, and the over-the-top greenhouse destruction scene. I did welcome the introduction of the Jack Klugman character and enjoyed each scene he was in, although they were too few and TOO LATE in the story, BUT even then the writer's lobby another implausible twist at us when Klugman gives Lemmon the keys to his car KNOWING FULL WELL that Lemmon is going to visit Remick during her motel drinking binge! Can you spell D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R coming! I know I will never watch this turkey again. The so-called "sad" ending whereby Remick can not join Lemmon in sobriety was so-leaden w/ total implausibilities that I just fast forwarded to the credits and told myself "good riddance" to a truly awful movie that some how inspires "rave" reviews. Go figure!

Realistic Story About Two Alcoholics
As long as I can remember, I have always known and liked the song called "Days Of Wine And Roses" that was written by Henry Mancini for the movie of the same name. Also, as long as I have been interested in movies, I understood that DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES was the story of two alcoholics as portrayed by Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick. However, I never got around to seeing the movie until just a few days ago when I rented it. Having watched the movie, I plan to buy it on DVD. For those readers who have not seen the movie, the story itself is as such: Jack Lemmon plays Joe Clay, a public relations worker who enjoys a drink to relax. Almost from the beginning, it is apparent that he is more than just a social drinker, hence his constantly saying "Hit me up!" He meets a woman named Kirsten, played by Lee Remick, who does not drink at all. As they get to be friendly, she relents and finds that she enjoys alcohol. It starts out fun and social as the title would depict. They eventually marry and have a daughter. However, it is not long afterward that their downward spiral begins. After several mishaps including Joe losing his job, he realizes it is time to get sober. They get clean but then fall off the bandwagon. At this point, Joe realizes he is an alcoholic and joins Alcoholics Anonymous but Kirsten fails to admit that she too is an alcoholic. After yet another relapse, Joe sobers up and about a year later, he says to Kirsten he would take her back if and ONLY if she will admit she is an alcoholic. She still is not able to admit that she has a problem with alcohol too and the movie ends with Kirsten walking down the street while Joe watches her from his window.

While viewing the movie, it started off rather slow but then it really got my attention and was quite shocking. I especially felt that way about the scene where Jack Lemmon, after having a relapse, destroys his father-in-law's greenhouse while searching for a hidden bottle of liquor. I also felt it showed the guilt Jack Lemmon's character had about his drinking problem as well as the fact that he turned his wife onto drink too. The scene in the latter part of the movie where he tries to make peace with his father-in-law shows how he wants to make up for all the damage and sorrow he had caused. What was also realistic, I felt, was the depiction that although drinking was fun and social for the couple at first, it became a hardship that caused problems for both of them. The portrayal was realistic in that both characters, especially Jack Lemmon's, had trouble staying off alcohol and relapsed several times. I would like to comment about the ending. While Lee Remick's character was not ready to admit she was an alcoholic, in the final scene, she DOES NOT stop in the bar down the street. That gives me hope that perhaps she will eventually acknowledge her problem and also, seeing that her husband has been without a drink for almost a year might give her the incentive to do the same.

So good I can't watch it too often!
This is one of those films that works so well on so many levels that I'm often afraid to watch it! It's quite a change for Blake Edwards, who is probably best known for comedy and, earlier, cop shows on TV. Let it be known right off the bat that this is a serious drama. While it does have a few spots of comic relief to lighten it up, it still remains serious. While the film does work as a statement on alcoholism, I remain more fascinated by the film as a character study, seeing how the lives of the main characters change as the movie travels its course.

--POSSIBLE SPOILERS TO FOLLOW--

We start out with Jack Lemmon as the boozing, corporate-ready Joe Clay. He could be considered a "heavy social drinker" at this point. He quite accidentally meets the girl of his dreams (Lee Remick as Kirsten Arnesen) during a company function. They date, they become friends, he convinces her to take a drink, which is something she's never done before. Before long, she starts to "enjoy" drinking as much as Joe. We watch as their high-flying lifestyle slowly degrades as Joe's increased drinking begins to affect his job and his home life, and both begin a downward spiral. They first try to "dry out" together, but that fails. Joe is finally confronted by Alcoholics Anonymous, finally gets himself on the road to drying out for good, but still can't convince his wife to rejoin the family (and reality) and turn herself around. At this point we realize that we've had a complete role reversal in the film, and we're as sorry for Kirsten's seemingly irreversible condition as we are for Joe's guilt over what he's done to his wife...now that he's sober enough to realize what he's done.

Mancini has another good score on his hands for this film. While the musical accompaniment is spare, the film's title theme is a masterpiece. Accompanying the lonely melody is a simple, two-sentence Johnny Mercer lyric that sums up the entire attitude of the movie. Lemmon's acting is one of his finest performances, and like his performance in the excellent film "The Apartment," he proves his versatility in acting beyond the comedy genre. Remick is also masterful in transforming the shy Kirsten into the washed-out shell of her former self that she becomes at the end.

This movie is, in a word, sobering, and one of Edwards' finest. Highly recommended!
