"Funny, how gentle people get with you once you're dead."

The above quote is from the 1950 film Sunset Blvd, directed by Billy Wilder. It's Wilder's 100th birthday today; sadly, he died in 2002. Wilder co-wrote directed some of the funniest American movies ever-- Some Like It Hot is probably the one people remember best -- as well as dramas like Double Indemnity, Sunset Blvd, and The Apartment. Even his less successful and lesser-known films include some wonderful moments. So in honor of Wilder's birthday, here's a Cinematical Seven on the creme de la creme of fantastic, memorable scenes in Wilder's films.
