Save The Tiger (1973)

John G. Avildsen directs Jack Lemmon, Jack Gilford and Laurie Heineman in this drama where a harried factory owner has to make some tough calls when his business is on the line.

An Oscar winning turn for Jack – deserved but movie exists almost solely to deliver that gold. I ain’t complaining as he’s glorious in a role that is both layered, challenging, beautifully written… even if it is obvious legacy bait. Gives you a searing summation of the White American psyche under Nixon, pre-Watergate.
