two brave men
billy wilder and joe mankiewicz were both geniuses when it came to writing stunning and memorable films. billy won 7 oscars, joe won 11 (5 as a writer). 'all about eve' and 'sunset blvd' are perhaps two of the most quoted films. perhaps wilder's 'double indemnity' is as good as the two put together.
“If you're going to tell people the truth, be funny or they'll kill you.”-billy wilder
"The difference between life and the movies is that a script has to make sense, and life doesn't."-Joseph L. Mankiewicz
