The Apartment was shown on the WNET network of PBS as part of Reel 13 Classics (January 23 at 9:00 pm). If you did not see or record it then, you may be able to see it through a PBS playback system (such as Thirteen Passport) or other streaming service. Also, its DVD is listed in the Westport Library catalog. Spotlight is available on Netflix, and its DVD is listed in the catalogs of the Westport and Fairfield libraries.
In The Apartment, “Insurance worker C. C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon) lends his Upper West Side apartment to company bosses to use for extramarital affairs. When his manager Mr. Sheldrake (Fred MacMurray) begins using Baxter’s apartment in exchange for promoting him, Baxter is disappointed to learn that Sheldrake's mistress is Fran Kubelik (Shirley MacLaine), the elevator girl at work whom Baxter is interested in himself. Soon Baxter must decide between the girl he loves and the advancement of his career.”
Spotlight is a “riveting true story of the Pulitzer Prize winning Boston Globe investigation that would rock the city and cause a crisis in one of the world’s oldest and most trusted institutions. When the newspaper’s tenacious ‘Spotlight’ team of reporters delve into allegations of abuse in the Catholic Church, their year-long investigation uncovers a decades-long cover-up at the highest levels of Boston's religious, legal, and government establishment.”
