The Out-of-Towners

Film

The Out-of-Towners is a 1970 comedy film written by Neil Simon, directed by Arthur Hiller, and starring Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis. It was released by Paramount Pictures on May 28, 1970. Much of the film's humor is derived from the interaction between George, the manic husband desperately collecting the names of everyone he encounters with plans to sue every last one of them, and Gwen, the mousy wife who accepts each new indignation with quiet resignation.

  • When I finished the draft of The Out-of-Towners, I had some business in California, and while there, I called Jack Lemmon and asked if I could have lunch with him. We met in the Polo Lounge of the Beverly Hills Hotel, then the hub of all business deals made in Hollywood. I told him about the new screenplay, but didn’t bring the script with me because I didn’t want to show him an unpolished work. He listened to the story, laughed as I got into a few details, and when I got to the end, I said, “That’s more or less it.”
