"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.""--Jacket." ;
