Christmas Clip O' the Day (2 of 5) | It's literally Christmas Eve.

2013, the first year in literally a million that I didn't post this clip somewhere on Christmas Eve.


This scene from THE APARTMENT.  C.C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon), the bar, Santa, the jukebox, the pick-up, the straws, the dancing, the guy trying to close up - it's my current and long-standing favorite Christmas Eve on film.  Also a favorite film scene, full stop.


Some years you're C.C. Baxter, some years you're Santa, some years you're trying to close up shop, and some years you're blowing straw wrappers at a stranger in a crowded bar.
