A new box set from Sony documents Jack Lemmon’s reign as America’s ultimate male hysteric, trapped between the corporate conformism of the 1950s and the sexual revolution of the 1960s. Mark Robson’s 1954 “Phffft!” will not help the case for Robson’s post-Val Lewton auteur status, but Richard Quine’s distinctive style emerges in “Operation Mad Ball” (1957) and “The Notorious Landlady” (1962), both co-written by Blake Edwards. And then there is the curious case of David Swift, the former Disney animator who went from “Pollyanna” (1960) to the hypnotically smutty “Under the Yum Yum Tree” (1963) and the vastly superior “Good Neighbor Sam” (1964), a frenetic sex farce set largely in a fantasy suburb that seems presciently Spielbergian. Swift is a sort of road company Frank Tashlin, with an animator’s eye for visual abstraction and an anarchist’s resentment of the business world, though he lacks Tashlin’s elegance and control.
