Another non-birthday salute

TCM is spending this morning and afternoon honoring Jack Lemmon by showing a bunch of his movies. I was pretty certain that today isn't Lemmon's birthday, and a search through the archives reveals that Lemmon was in fact my first birthday salute, back in February 2008.

To be fair to TCM, however, they can't really give a proper birthday salute to Jack Lemmon. Having been born in February, it means that his is one of the many birthdays that fall during the annual 31 Days of Oscar programming period. Then again, Lemmon himself was nominated eight times, and at least some of his other films received nominations for other work (Walter Matthau's Best Supporting Actor win in The Fortune Cookie springs to mind).
