Billy Wilder

I'm not going to tell you the story of Billy Wilder. You should recognise the name, at the very least. If not, you can't call yourself a student of film. On the other hand, you have some delightful homework in front of you.

Here is an interview, split into three parts, followed by a four part documentary.

Part 1

Intelligent, funny, skilled, and his humanity deepened by the loss of his innocent family in the war and his innocent son as a newborn.

I've always thought Marilyn Munroe's performance in Some Like It Hot was beautifully drawn out by a sensitive director.
