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.
