Synopsis: A detailed film about the life of Billy Wilder, the director of countless classics. All his life, Wilder was able to make all kinds of films from noir to drama to comedy and even war films. The film chronicles his rise to stardom. His ability to constantly slip past the Hollywood rating system at the time with his movies that portrayed real, heartfelt, and often
controversial, situations is also examined. An all-star cast helps to tell this magnificent story of brilliance. Steven Spielberg, the director to replace Wilder in real life as director of 1993’s Schindler’s List will direct and produce.

What the press would say:

Another hit to add to the long list of Steven Spielberg victories. He tells the story of Billy Wilder with stunning power and perception. The cast is all great and will easily be in the running come Oscar time.
