    Billy Wilder directed Marilyn Monroe, James Cagney, Kim Novak, William Holden, Audrey Hepburn, Jack Lemmon, Jean Arthur among many others in their finest work. It is difficult to name a favorite Billy Wilder film. Double Indemnity, Some Like It Hot, Sunset Blvd are all perfect movies. Gloria Swanson should have won the Oscar for her blazing performance in Sunset Blvd., and Marilyn Monroe and Joe E Brown were unjustly over looked for Some Like It Hot. A special Wilder film overlooked by some is Fedora at the end of his career, It's distributior Allied Artists was going out of business. Wilder had a tendency to create a stock company of stars he used over and over and as such William Holden and Jack Lemmon were two Billy Wilder favorites. To me Billy Wilder is my favorite Director and the finest Director of them all.

    "Double Indemnity," "Sunset Boulevard," "Some Like It Hot" and "The Apartment" are four of the greatest films ever. Not a flaw in any of them. These four secure Wilder's reputation and standing as one of Hollywood's finest (and most gifted). But he did many films - and I always particularly enjoy "The Seven Year Itch" (the magic Marilyn Factor), and "Kiss Me, Stupid" is a true guilty pleasure. What range andstyle Billy Wilder had, and what a legacy he left!

    What a career he had! I've never seen another director with Wilder's sheer versatility. I don't know anyone else who could go from "Double Indemnity" to (eventually "Some Like It Hot", the funniest film I've ever seen. I could list off a whole bunch of classic cinema and a good number of them would be from Billy Wilder. Nothing I say could fully express my appreciation for him. To Ginger Rogers, he was her "M.F.D.", 'My Favorite Director'. Well... he's M.F.D too.
