Description: The director of such Hollywood classics as Double Indemnity, Some Like It Hot, The Apartment and Sunset Boulevard has always been intensely private. A journalist himself in his native Berlin, perhaps Wilder knew how distorted most things written about one can be. This book of interviews by Cameron Crowe which took place in Los Angeles in 1998 represents the first time Wilder was willing to talk at length about his life and work.

As a fan of Wilder, Cameron Crowe knew the films well and was eager to talk about every aspect of his films. Wilder, for example, explains why he cast Gary Cooper in Love in the Afternoon (1952), the way Arthur Miller made scenes 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 Indemnity, 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 our greatest directors of all time.
