Behind the scenes with Billy Wilder
An image gallery celebrating the genius of Billy Wilder who would have celebrated a birthday today.
This is, I must admit, an inappropriate tribute to a man whose talent for conveying words on the silver screen remains unequaled. Still, I enjoy looking at these images of Wilder at work and at play and hope you do too.
“I was not a guy writing deep-dish revelations. If people see a picture of mine and then sit down and talk about it for 15 minutes, that is a very fine reward, I think.”
We are still fascinated by his work – a very long 15 minutes.
Errol Flynn, The Perfect Specimen
Errol Flynn (1909-1959) would have celebrated a birthday this June 20th and I post this in tribute.
A Lux Radio Theater performance of “The Perfect Specimen,” which originally aired on January 2, 1939 with Errol Flynn and Joan Blondell reprising their roles from the Michael Curtiz-directed 1937 film of the same title.
If it’s images of Errol Flynn you enjoy most, visit a previous tribute I’d dedicated to the actor here – never a waste of time as far as I’m concerned.
