It is not, however, Wilder at his best;nor ‘does. it. figure to: attain the blockbuster } category of some of his other films. |. . -On the plus side of the “Irma” }.. ledger, there are scintillating per| ° formances by two stars. of :the first |. Jack Lemmon. and| Shirley MacLaine, a batch of jovial | ... supporting. portrayals; a striking | magnitude, physical production and a number of infections comedy scenes. These | ‘positive factors, along with ‘the |: Wilder brand name and a liberal }dosage of sex, should combine ‘to.|" {nsure a robust and highly profit-|: . able public response to the Mirisch Co.-Edward. L. Alperson presentation. ‘andUnited’ Artists release. But. “Irma”. also misses on sev| eral important: counts, and the fact. ‘problems inherent in an.atfempt to. convert 2 Jegit musical.into a tune-| less motion. picture farce. In the first: place, | ofa bee; it loses a part of its iden-: tity. Transplanting it in this. ‘re-| vised form to the screen. poses an . even greater problem, since film is. a medium. of far greater realism: “than the. stage, and many. picture| "goers, responding ~ with natural | ‘concern to: the ‘sentimental’ love} < a story, may try to, take the demusicalized “Irma”: too ‘seriously . instead of receiving it. as. pure, unadulterated farce. ‘But what hurts the. film the: ‘most is: its length. Two hours and 27 minutes is an awfully long haul | for a frivolous farce. There are several ‘draggy . letdowns, .of which, a bedroom scene wherein ‘Lemmon is induced to revive his lost ‘male virility via. sensual. use -of his -imagination, should be: sliced to absolute essentials. Other scenes could. be tightened, too.. Half-an| hour iess film: could make. It a‘better film. © The hot-and-cold scenario. by “Wilder and. L.A.L.. Diamond, based. on the play by Alexandre Breffort,.‘traces. the love affair of “Irma”. (Miss. MacLaine), a proud ‘and. profitable practitioner of the old darme (Lemmon). who gets bounced off the force when he makes the mistake of taking his job seriously.
