Wilder Wisdom

Friend Keith forwarded quotes from film genius Billy Wilder.

Here are my favorite bon mots.

"If you're going to tell people the truth, be funny or they'll kill you."

"Shoot a few scenes out of focus. I want to win the foreign film award."

"It is not necessary for a director to know how to write. However, it helps if he knows how to read."

I may have to write a thesis on the “be funny” one.

Just my thoughts,
