A German émigré, Billy Wilder helped usher in a new Hollywood aesthetic. Transitioning from a changing Germany to Hollywood had its complications, but Wilder was able to negotiate his politics and humor into some of the most influential, beloved cinematic texts Hollywood produced during its Golden Age. Using Wilder's films, we will discuss the significance of film in communicating meaning, bringing people together, and affecting its audiences.
