Happy Birthday: Billy Wilder!

Billy Wilder is tied as my most favorite director of all time with Alfred Hitchcock. Today, he would have been ridiculously old, 104!!!

Wilder was a genius. He wrote brilliant screenplays that never lacked quick, witty humor. I enjoy watching his films over and over again because the jokes never get old.

The magnificent writing duo: Wilder and Diamond.

Billy displaying to Marilyn how to kiss Tony Curtis 
for a scene in Some Like it Hot; this cracks me up.
