Always daring Hollywood censors' limits on content, Billy Wilder directed greats such as Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, Ginger Rogers, Marlene Dietrich, Kirk Douglas, Audrey Hepburn, and Gary Cooper. Billy Wilder: Interviews follows the filmmaking career of one of Hollywood's most honored and successful writer-directors and spans over fifty years. Wilder, born in 1906, fled from Nazi Germany and established himself in America. Starting with a celebrated 1944 Life magazine profile, the book traces his progress from his Oscar-winning heyday of the 1940s to the 1990s, in which he is still witty, caustic, and defiant. Often playful and sometimes outrageous, but just as often very serious, Wilder details his rise as a Berlin cub reporter to a fledgling screenwriter in Hollywood's "Golden Age." He tells the stories behind his brilliant direction of such classics as Double Indemnity (1944), The Lost Weekend (1945), Sunset Boulevard (1950), Stalag 17 (1953), Sabrina (1954), The Seven-Year Itch (1955), Some Like It Hot (1959), and The Apartment (1960), among others. A dazzling raconteur, Wilder gives the scoop on the royalty of cinema, from the maddening magic of Monroe to the uncanny empathy of frequent alter ego Lemmon. Though his natural tendency is to spin marvelous anecdotes on the subject of show business, Wilder also delivers penetrating and instructive observations on his craft. On screen, his special blend of cynicism and romanticism was always expressed in a style that avoided showiness. Billy Wilder: Interviews includes in-depth profiles, spirited Q&A's, and on-the-set glimpses of the director at work. Taken together, the interviews form an unofficial memoir of a sophisticated artist once described by a colleague as the most unusual and amusing man in Hollywood. Robert Horton is the film critic for The Herald in Everett, Washington. His work has been published in Film Comment, New York Newsday, American Film, and the Seattle Weekly.

A bullet-riddled body floats in the pool of a faded screen star. A desperate wife and a crafty insurance man mix lust with murder. Two musicians flee Prohibition gangsters by joining an all-girl band. A likable loser climbs the corporate ladder by pimping for his bosses. Only in the skewed world of Billy Wilder would such situations provide the context for classic cinema: Sunset Boulevard, Double Indemnity, Some Like It Hot, and The Apartment. Over a career longer than that of any other celebrated film-maker, Wilder has co written and directed an enduring body of work noted for its range, intelligence, wit, and bracing, if off-kilter, morality. A master of many genres, the six-time Oscar winner has given the world classic comedies (Ninotchka, The Seven Year Itch), romances (Sabrina, Love In The Afternoon), and dramas (The Lost Weekend, Stalag 17). Even movies once dismissed as failures (Ace In The Hole; Kiss Me, Stupid) now attract admiring fans. Examine the many sides of Billy Wilder: writer, producer, director, quipster, iconoclast, mensch. What's in this book? As well as an introductory essay, each of Wilder's Hollywood films is individually reviewed and analyzed. The reference section assesses books on Wilder. Don't end up with the fuzzy end of the lollipop or the squeezed-out tube of toothpaste! Discover a great filmmaker-or get to know him even better.

Born in Austria but named after Buffalo Bill, Billy Wilder arrived in Hollywood thoroughly versed in American culture - and promptly began turning out movies more "American" in setting and sensibility than those helmed by his homegrown colleagues. Works like Double Indemnity and Sunset Blvd. remain classics today for their hard-edged and powerful portrayals of modern life in Wilder's adopted country. Even comedies like The Seven-Year Itch and Some Like it Hot shine with Wilder's keen perceptions of American life. Billy Wilder, American Film Realist closely examines a selection of Wilder's films from 1941 through 1981. These films show Wilder at his best - as a hardworking Hollywood craftsman and an astute commentator on the "American Century."

With a career spanning nearly 50 years and 27 films, director Billy Wilder left an indelible mark on film and American pop culture in general. Four of his greatest films-- Double Indemnity, Sunset Boulevard, The Apartment, and The Lost Weekend-- have become iconic cornerstones of cinema. His work with Marilyn Monroe crafted her most iconic image, while his films with Jack Lemmon, Audrey Hepburn, Walter Matthau and William Holden helped to make the actors into legends. More than that, though, his films routinely tested the boundaries of and defined mid-century America, creating a body of work that is admired and emulated to this day. Two devotees of his works, Danny Reid and Ryan Rinchiuso, now go through each of his films, dissecting their themes, motifs and lessons. From Mauvise Graine in 1934 to Buddy Buddy in 1981, they explore each of the master's works with equal doses of admiration, thoughtfulness, and humor.

Zwischenprüfungsarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Sonstiges, Note: 2,0, Universität Duisburg-Essen (Germanistik, Filmwissenschaft ), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: “Nobody is perfect” - mit diesem bekannten Schlusswort endet einer der berühmten Filme Billy Wilders, SOME LIKE IT HOT mit Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis und Marilyn Monroe in den Hauptrollen, welcher 1959 gedreht wurde und zum Genre der Komödie zu zählen ist. Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit soll die Analyse der Exposition sein, welche eine Bild- sowie Tonanalyse beinhaltet. Die Analyse basiert auf der überarbeiteten Fassung von 2001 der MGM Home Entertainment GmbH. Bearbeitet wurde die amerikanische Version im Format 16:9. Eingeteilt ist die Expositionssequenz in zwei Subsequenzen, denen ein Prolog vorausgeht. Die Analyse soll zunächst darüber Aufschluss geben, welche Funktion dem Prolog zukommt und warum dieser nicht als Exposition gesehen werden kann. Als Grundlage dient hierfür Rudolf Arnheims Film als Kunst. Anschließend erfolgt die Einteilung der Expositionssequenz in zwei Subsequenzen, welche kompositorisch sowie dramaturgisch voneinander zu trennen sind. Darauf aufbauend soll die Bild- und -Tonanalyse der beiden Subsequenzen Einblick darüber geben, ob alle wichtigen Voraussetzungen für eine Exposition umgesetzt sind und wie diese gestaltet sind. Als Sekundärliteratur werden hierfür wissenschaftliche Arbeiten von Gerd Gemünden, Maurice Zolotow, Cameron Crowe sowie Neil Sinyard hinzugezogen, welche sich umfassend mit Billy Wilders Filmen sowie SOME LIKE IT HOT auseinandergesetzt haben. Abschließend wird im Ausblick diskutiert, welche Motive, die bereits im Prolog und in der Exposition aufgegriffen werden, im weiteren Verlauf des Films ihre Fortführung finden. Überdies wird erläutert, welche Funktion die Exposition innerhalb der Gesamtkomposition hat.

The films of Billy Wilder, from Double Indemnity to Some Like It Hot, are American classics created by a brilliant Austrian in love with his newfound country. This is a re-examination of the key American films of Wilder, often challenging previous readings of his filmmaking style and personality, emphasizing the pop-cultural, film-historical, and sociohistorical content of well known films like Sunset Boulevard and less frequently remembered ones, like The Fortune Cookie. The book interprets Wilder as more than the "cocky little Viennese" or "closet Romantic" stereotypes often attached to him. Here the student will find provocative analysis and the enthusiast will find evocative commentary on one of the most important figures in American film. Photographs add to the text, and a complete filmography and bibliography are also included. Fully indexed.
