On this day in 1968, The Odd Couple hit theaters. This comedy was based on the extremely successful play by Neil Simon.

The film starred Jack Lemon as a obsessive clean freak who is forced to move in with the not-so- neat sportswriter played by Walter Matthau.

The film was one of the top grossing films of that year, and a TV series based on The Odd Couple would debut just two years later.
