N.Y. Site Skeds Wilder Retro

Manhattan’s Film Forum salutes Billy Wilder with a six-week retrospective of his work as writer and director, May 10 to June 20.

As part of the tribute, Volker Schlondorff , who recently directed a documentary about Wilder, will appear at Goethe House June 1 to speak about Wilder’s career. The event also serves to reopen Goethe House.

All of Wilder’s directorial assignments ranging from the classics “Double Indemnity” and “The Lost Weekend” through his recent pictures will be screened.

Rare showings of German films Wilder scripted nearly 60 years ago also will take place. These include Gerhard Lamprecht’s 1931 “Emil And The Detectives,” Ernst Laemmle’s silent picture “Der Teufelsreporter” and Robert Siodmak’s “People On Sunday,” as well as “Mauvaise Graine,” which Wilder co-directed in France in 1933.

Hollywood pics scripted by Wilder before he began directing will be included as well, such as the Mitchell Leisen-helmed classics “Midnight,” “Arise, My Love” and “Hold Back The Dawn,” and lesser known features like Theodore Reed’s “What A Life,” A. Edward Sutherland’s “Champagne Waltz” and William Thiele’s “Lottery Lover.”
