Billy Wilder’s hard-hitting, Oscar winning drama about the vicious circle of alcoholism has lost none of its power even after all these decades. Few films have captured the mind of a self-destructive alcoholic with such insight and sensitivity.
The liquor industry offered Paramount 5 million dollars to bury the film. Paramount refused and it resulted in 4 oscars including Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and Actor.
