Description: The director of such Hollywood classics as "Double Indemnity, " "Some Like It Hot, " "The Apartment, " and "Sunset Boulevard" has always been intensely private. As a journalist in Berlin, Wilder knew how distorted most things written about one can be. Cameron Crowe's interviews with Wilder which were conducted in Los Angeles over a period of time between 1998-1999 represent the first time Wilder was willing to talk at length about his life and work.

As a Wilder fan, Cameron Crowe was extremely familiar wi the films and able to pose questions that had not been asked before. Though very cagey at ducking what he doesn't want to reveal, Wilder began to trust Crowe and open up to him. Wilder, for example, explains why he cast Gary Cooper in "Love in the Afternoon" (1952), the scenes Arthur Miller made about Monroe's schedule during the filming of "Some Like It Hot, " how they changed the script to make Tony Curtis impotent. He talks about camera angles, writing screenplays, voice overs -- which he used in "Double Indemity, " "Stalag 17, " "Sunset Boulevard"; being a writer at MGM during the making of "Ninotchka, " and meeting Garbo; his opinion of director William Wyler and Charles Laughton during the making of "Witness for the Prosecution." This is a rich book that captures the voice and heart of one of the greatest directors of all time.
