About the Author

Billy Wilder was born in 1906 near Cracow in Polish Galicia, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. His first career was journalism, but he soon moved into the German film industry as a scriptwriter. When Hitler came to power, Wilder fled to Paris and came to Hollywood in 1934. His fifty-year career there—as both director and cowriter—was one of astonishing versatility and genius, encompassing films about war, murder, alcoholism, Hollywood, sensational journalism, prison camps, criminal trials, love stories, and romance as comedy. Billy Wilder has been nominated for twenty-one Academy Awards and has won six Oscars. He lives in Los Angeles. Jeffrey Meyers, a renowned biographer, has written many books and articles on modern American, English, and European literature. He lives in Berkeley.

It's a pleasure to read Wilder's screenplay for "Sunset Boulevard." Rarely are the director and the writer the same person. In this case we get to see what Wilder wanted depicted in an almost poetic writing style. When coupled with the beautiful final product it is truly a treat to watch Billy Wilder's timeless classic "Sunset Boulevard"

I assumed this was a book. It was a photo copy of the typed screen play and virtually impossible to read on a kindle

I used it in theater class for the students to read each scene before viewing the film. It was interesting to see the differences and the shots that were spot on in the screenplay.

I think the way Billie Wilder expresses the life of a washed up actress and the life of a starving screnwriter is a wonderful interpratations of life ever. i loved the musical although I found it far fetched from the book.
