A great place to start for Billy Wilder Oct. 19 2009
By Martin Wegner - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Yes, you can definitely make a list of the four top Billy Wilder movies and it would not match what is in this set. But that list would include the two Wilder masterpieces ("Some Like It Hot" and "The Apartment") and "The Fortune Cookie" is very very underrated. So to have those three in one set is nothing to quibble over. And the fourth film, "Kiss Me Stupid", is still both entertaining and an interesting step on Wilder's progression towards "Avanti!". So if you own no Wilder you should start with this boxed set.

My only issue with this set is that the version of "Some Like It Hot" is not subtitled. But given the excellence of the movies themselves this did not detract from my rating or my enjoyment.

Must Have For *Wilder* Or ***Jack Lemmon*** Fans! Sept. 29 2009
By Alex Honda - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I picked up the BILLY WILDER FILM COLLECTION DVD SET because it was on sale here at Amazon. I basically wanted the DVD of "Some Like It Hot" and noticed that it was part of this collection, and with the sale price, this set was only a few dollars more than buying just the one DVD.

And I was curious about the picture "The Fortune Cookie" which Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon first team up, but I like Odd Couple - The Centennial Collection (2pc) better.

Anyway, this set collects the four Wilder movies "Some Like It Hot," "The Apartment," "Kiss Me, Stupid," and "The Fortune Cookie" and offers them on four DVDs housed in slim plastic cases. The films are in black and white and range in date from 1959-1966

Even though I enjoyed watching the other films, "Some Like It Hot" was the stand out in this collection. And unless it goes on sale again, I would wait on buying this set unless you are a huge fan of director Billy Wilder or Jack Lemmon.

The extras on these DVDs:

Documentary--"Nostalgic Look Back"--31:11-minutes
Film critic/historian Leonard Maltin interviews Tony Curtis about the film.

Featurette--"Memories From The Sweet Sues"--12:03-minutes
Interviews with the actresses who played in the all-girl band in the movie. Marian Collier "Olga," Laurie Mitchell "Mary Lou," Sandra Warner "Emily" (who was actually the body in all of the publicity photos for Monroe which they show in this featurette) and Joan Nicholas "Betty," all talk about the making of the film and working with Lemmon, Curtis and Marilyn Monroe. Photos from behind the scenes etc.

"Virtual Hall Of Memories"
These show clips of each of the actors from the film within a picture frame. You choose each by pressing "next" on your remote control. Shows clips from the film and behind the scenes photos of the actors getting in drag etc. There's a picture frame for Monroe, Curtis, Lemmon, and Wilder plus a "behind-the-scenes" one.

Still Photos--
PressBook Gallery showing poster etc.

Trailers for SLIH and other Wilder films.

Documentary--"Inside The Apartment"--29:29-minutes
Interview with Shirley Maclaine and Chris Lemmon (Jack Lemmon's son) about the movie and shows clips and still photos etc.

Featurette--"Magic Time: The Art Of Jack Lemmon"-12:45-minutes
Chris Lemmon talks about his father's career.

Audio Commentary--From film historian Bruce Block.

Alternate scene--5:22-minutes

Trailer and Teaser Trailer


My advice is to buy this set when it's on sale. But if you're looking for Billy Wilder movies and this set isn't on sale Some Like It Hot and Sunset Boulevard - The Centennial Collection are great and much stronger films, imo.

If you're looking for Jack Lemmon films get Odd Couple - The Centennial Collection (2pc) and The Out-of-Towners which are two of my favorites.
Skip this set and go buy "Some Like It Hot" by itself June 8 2015

Based on reviews I bought this set.
"The Apartment" 2-stars It's about a spineless guy who is used by corporate executives to commit adultery in his apartment.
"The Fortune Cookie" 3-stars Bit of a snooze. About a camera guy who is injured and is used by his brother-in-law to con an insurance company. The football player that injured the camera buy is black and it was a bit awkward in parts. They use a few racial slurs.
"Kiss Me Stupid" 1 star I fell asleep. I imagine it was funnier on script. Man is overly jealous of his hot wife. Dean-o comes to town and has to stay overnight but has a "need". Has to stay at jealous guys house. Wife is made angry so she leaves. Prostitute is brought in (seriously) as a staged wife for Dean-o to commit adultery with (again seriously). Then I fell asleep. I woke up and Dean-o was getting out of bed with the wife in the Pro's trailer and the Pro was being dropped off by the husband. Adultery people! Again this Billy Wilder wanted to entertain folks with "cute" adultery! I wonder why? Married Judith Coppicus on December 22, 1936. Met Audrey Young in1945 and divorced his first wife the following year.
Yea, yea.... I hear you mumbling about my high morals. Trust me I'm no angel but I have my boundaries. And so for anyone out there that doesn't want to be entertained by that mess, well here ya go. You've been forewarned.
"Some Like It Hot" 5-stars After the other three movies I was skeptical about this one. I like all the lead stars. So it took a week or so before made my popcorn and settled in for whatever I was getting myself into. Well I'll be snookered. I'm going to be watching this one again! I laughed out loud in several places and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. It was great! What a bunch of nuts. They were all adorable and the pace never dragged. Brilliant. Loved it. OK Billy Wilder I may give you another chance.
So, I tossed the other three DVDs and kept this one. Skip this set and go buy "Some Like It Hot" by itself.
