Billy Wilder

Billy Wilder runs into Louis Malle. This was in the late sixtes, early seventies. And Louis Malle had just made his most expensive film, which had cost two million dollars. And Billy Wilder asks him what the film is about. And Louis Malle says, “It’s sort of a dream within a dream.” And Billy Wilder says, “You just lost two million dollars.”
