As a big fan of Billy Wilder’s movies and screenplays, reading ‘Conversations with Wilder’ was an amazing experience for me. It’s a long interview with him, by Cameron Crowe, who is the director of Jerry Maguire, and is so attractive for a movie-worm! The book is full of detailed memories of the stunning years of Hollywood & first hand stories by a great story-teller named Wilder. He has talked about most important superstars of classic movies, such as Marilyn Monroe, Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, Gary Cooper, Jack Lemmon and etc.
The book in Farsi has been translated very well by Goli Emami. She has done a good job on translating Wilder’s funny and humorous dialogues.

* the title is the name of a movie by Wilder.
