Description : "A Twist of Lemmon" is based on actor and classically trained musician Chris Lemmon's book of the same title, which tells the story of a beloved Hollywood icon, his dad, Jack Lemmon. Jack starred in over 60 films, was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won two Oscars (for "Mister Roberts" and "Save the Tiger"). Chris tells Jack's story in his father's voice and chronicles his life from birth until his death in 2001 at the age of 76. He'll have you crying and laughing with his stories about Jack's relationships with legends like James Cagney, Gregory Peck, Marilyn Monroe and of course his best friend, Walter Matthau. Jack loved his son Chris, but like many actors put his career first and family second. It's that relationship that's the focal point for this extremely moving story.
