Billy Wilder on “The Lubitsch Touch”

Besides being totally charming, the above clip’s worth watching for its lesson in narrative economy. (I just showed my girlfriend Heaven Can Wait (1943), so Lubitsch and his storytelling mastery is much on my mind.)

A. D. Jameson is the author of five books, most recently I FIND YOUR LACK OF FAITH DISTURBING: STAR WARS AND THE TRIUMPH OF GEEK CULTURE and CINEMAPS: AN ATLAS OF 35 GREAT MOVIES (with artist Andrew DeGraff). Last May, he received his Ph.D. in Creative Writing from the Program for Writers at UIC.
