Critical study of the oeuvre of Billy Wilder is still surprisingly scant almost a decade following his death. What emerges, however, is nothing short of several revelations and some of the freshest and most insightfully written examinations on Billy Wilder to date. While his Austrian-Hungarian and German colleagues in Hollywood Erich von Stroheim, Josef von Sternberg, Ernst Lubitsch, Fritz Lang, Fred Zinnemann, Michael Curtiz understood the reconstruction of identity and style that was necessary to succeed in the American studio factory, it seems only Wilder had rehearsed it to the point of a self-conscious cinematic philosophy. His experiences as an Austro-Pole in imperial Vienna, an Austrian in Weimar-era Berlin, a Jew in an increasingly anti-Semitic Europe, and a Central European refugee in Hollywood, were a training ground in the comprehension of identity and its slippage. His early career as a journalist in both Vienna and Berlin made him a shrewd judge of the illusions of society and, in particular, the follies and foibles of the bourgeoisie attempting to maintain control and even privilege.

    This wide-ranging collection of essays by an international group of scholars examines the significance of Wilder's filmmaking from a variety tne original perspectives. Little wonder that transvestism and the questioning of traditional gender representation hold such a unique place in his work? Its successful interdisciplinary angle should also persuade film study of the theoretical complexity yet to be examined in the work of Billy Wilder. Audible Download Audio Books.😜
