For me personally the key to greatness has always been and will always be memorability. If something is great then you'll remember it and if it isn't (At least to you) then you won't, it's as simple as that.
"Wednesday" has stuck with me since childhood. To me, this little seen short film is Jack Lemmon at his absolute best.
He's done innumerable films of fantastic quality and more than made his mark in work that practically everyone has seen from The Odd Couple & The China Syndrome to the Grumpy Old Men films at the close of his deservedly lauded career. Nobody can or should take away the influence of those films. But for me personally it's "Wednesday" that will always be at the forefront of my mind when thinking of Lemmon and if you haven't seen it but are a fan of him & his work then I couldn't encourage you more strongly to see it. You can find it on youtube and elsewhere online. You won't be sorry that you invested the few paltry minutes that it takes to watch this superlative short film and who knows? After watching it you just might end up agreeing with me that when you think of Lemmon, you think of "Wednesday"too.
