A Slip Under the Yum-Yum Tree

Under the Yum-Yum Tree - poster

Under the Yum-Yum Tree is a silly trifle from 1963 that I caught on TCM.  It is hardly a great film, but those in the mood for vintage Jack Lemmon  jaunting about in a little escapade might have fun.  One of the best parts is the opening dance sequence.

After watching the movie, I was surprised to find that Netflix has only three Jack Lemmon films available via VOD: Glengarry Glen Ross, The Apartment, and The Odd Couple.  All important films to be sure, but iTunes has those three films, plus Under the Yum-Yum TreeSome Like It Hot, and 34 more films.  Very telling the difference as far as movie selection of Netflix compared to Apple.  I know that the focus for Netflix these days is TV, but to have merely three Jack Lemmon pictures is sad commentary.
