Plot Synopsis:

A showbiz partner often thinks his sidekick is a pain in the neck. Lewis and Clark have lower anatomical opinions of each other.

In writer Neil Simon's warm stage-to-screen adaptation, Walter Matthau and George Burns play feuding vaudevillians reteaming for a TV special - if they survive rehearsals. Matthau earned a 1975 Best Actor Golden Globe Award and Oscar nomination for his cantankerous Willy Clark. And as hilariously deadpan Al Lewis, George Burns turned his first on-camera film role in 36 years into a Best Supporting Actor Oscar-winning performance and a relaunch of his movie career. Also the winner of Golden Globes for Best Comedy/Musical and for Best Supporting Actor Richard Benjamin, The Sunshine Boys is comic perfection from masters of the art.
