Product Description:
Joyful Complicity: Billy Wilder and Marilyn Monroe Video (VHS/DVD). As an investigative journalist in Austria-Hungary, Billy Wilder espoused ideals that would be the themes in his later films: a play of ambiguity; changes of identity; and a fascination for America. This compassionate program explains how Wilder used these themes to craft Marilyn Monroe’s performances in The Seven Year Itch and Some Like It Hot. Their joyful complicity is best illustrated in Wilder’s Fedora, sequel to his masterpiece Sunset Boulevard and made 16 years after Monroe’s untimely death; the film is his dedication to the actress whose talent and charm he argued would never be duplicated in Hollywood. (30 minutes, color and b&w).
