Wilder on Marilyn Monroe and other topics.
Typescript Signed: "Billy Wilder/92", 2p, 8½x11. Titled: "Quotes of Billy Wilder". Sixteen quotes. In part: "On Television...A twenty-one inch prison. I'm delighted with it because it used to be that films were the lowest form of art. Now we have something to look down on...On Technique...What critics call dirty in our movies, they call lusty in foreign films...On Marilyn Monroe...She has breasts like granite and a brain like Swiss cheese, full of holes. Extracting a performance from her is like pulling teeth...." BILLY WILDER (1906-2002) directed Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch and Some Like It Hot.
