Description by

Billy Wilder in Hollywood is a delightful biography of both screenwriter-director Wilder and an insider's look at Hollywood. Zolotow follows the career of the acerbic, sardonic, and brilliant Hollywood luminary who helped to transform the movie industry with his brash, cynical, and avant-garde films. It includes a behind-the-scenes look at Wilder's classics like Ninotchka, The Lost Weekend, Some Like It Hot, and others.

Product Description:

(Limelight). "A double delight: a richly entertaining biography of both screenwriter-director Wilder and his milieu Hollywood... a fascinating montage of a man whose talents and quirks, virtues and faults, are endlessly engrossing. Electrifying opinions of those with whom he has worked and the original casting choices for his films are often surprising: Mae West was his first choice for Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard and Mary Pickford was his second! A first-rate book about a complicated, talented curmudgeon." After Dark
