"In Conversations with Wilder, Hollywood's legendary director Billy Wilder agrees for the first time to talk extensively about his life and work." "Here, in a book with more than 650 black-and-white photographs - including film posters, stills, grabs, and never-before-seen pictures from Wilder's own collection - the ninety-three-year-old icon talks to Cameron Crowe, one of today's best-known writer-directors, about thirty years at the very heart of Hollywood, and about screenwriting and camera work, set design and stars, his peers and their movies, the studio system and films today. In his distinct voice we hear Wilder's insider view on his collaborations with such stars as Barbara Stanwyck, Gary Cooper, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, William Holden, Audrey Hepburn, and Greta Garbo (he was a writer at MGM during the making of Ninotchka). Here are Wilder's sharp and funny behind-the-scenes stories about the making of A Foreign Affair, Double Indemnity, Sunset Boulevard, Love in the Afternoon, Some Like It Hot, The Apartment, and Ace in the Hole, among many others."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
