Home / Now Showing / Paul Thomas Anderson Presents THE FORTUNE COOKIE
In Billy Wilder’s hysterically funny black comedy, Walter Matthau stars as shyster lawyer Willie Gingrich, who convinces his brother-in-law, TV cameraman Henry Hinkle (Jack Lemmon), to feign a crippling injury after a close call with a 220-pound halfback. Matthau received an Academy Award for his performance in this madcap tale of greed and recouping lost love.
