After writing various screenplays, he directed his first film in 1942, and soon developed a reputation as a witty and harshly sardonic critic of American mores. At first he mixed dramas and comedies, later concentrating on satire, and his 25 films represent many styles, approaches, and themes.

    Encyclopedia Article Multimedia 5 items Wilder, Billy (1906-2002), American motion-picture director, writer, and producer, whose best films—usually comedies—employ his distinctive dialogue to elucidate a darkly satirical view of human nature. Born Samuel Wilder in Vienna, Austria, he later moved to Berlin, Germany, where he worked first as a journalist and then as a screenwriter. Wilder left Germany after Adolf Hitler's rise to power in 1933, and in 1934 he immigrated to the United States, later becoming a U.S. citizen. Beginning in 1937, Wilder found his initial niche in Hollywood , California, as a screenwriter. From 1938 he teamed with American screenwriter Charles Brackett, with whom he was to carry on a long and successful collaboration until 1950. Together they wrote such memorably sophisticated screenplays as those for

    A Tribute to Billy Wilder
    When movie fans think of Billy Wilder, they often remember the comedies, including The Apartment Some Like It Hot , and The Seven-Year Itch . But he was also responsible for noir thrillers like Double Indemnity and Sunset Boulevard and powerful dramas such as Stalag 17 and The Lost Weekend . Nominated seven times for Best Director Oscars, Wilder was also one of the screen's leading writers, receiving 12 nominations for his screenplays. I can't honestly think of anybody else with such a record of achievement in both writing and directing. Billy was born Samuel Wilder on June 22, 1906 in a part of Austria that is now Poland. His mother nicknamed him "Billie" after Buffalo Bill, whose Wild West Show she had seen while visiting the United States as a teenager. (The spelling was changed after he came to the U.S.) He originally planned to become a lawyer, but ended up as a journalist in pre-war Europe. He started writing screenplays in 1929, then fled to Paris and America when Hitler came to power.

    Billy Wilder and Lilo Pulver on the set of One, Two, Three "A brain full of razor blades and a heart full of chutzpah" BY RICHARD ARMSTRONG In his screenplay for The Fortune Cookie (1966), Billy Wilder, who has died at age 95, described ‘Whiplash Willie’ Gingrich (Walter Matthau) as having "a brain full of razor blades and a heart full of chutzpah." During the 1960s , Wilder himself was often described as only marginally less cynical. With hindsight, the films and the sharp raconteur seem like a call for complexity and maturity in an age of rhetorical display. feuilletons of traditional Viennese reportage, Wilder wrote tough, realistic pieces on sporting personalities, local celebrities, and visiting jazz musicians. According to biographer Maurice Zolotow, he introduced sports writing into Austria single-handed. In 1926, bandleader Paul Whiteman invited Wilder to be his guide on a tour of Berlin. Wilder never returned to Vienna and became a dapper Americaphile, driving a Chrysler and, reputedly, learning English by memorizing song lyrics. Drifting into screenwriting, his career will emulate that twentieth-century paradigm: the European Jew emigrates, buys into the American Dream, resells the dream in Europe.
