Quote of the Day (Billy Wilder, on a Sure-Fire Way to Win an Oscar)

[To a cameraman on one of his pictures] “Shoot a few scenes out of focus. I want to win the foreign film award.”—Oscar-winning screenwriter-director Billy Wilder (The Lost Weekend, Sunset Boulevard, The Apartment), quoted in Peter Archer, The Quotable Intellectual: 1,417 Bon Mots, Ripostes, and Witticisms for Aspiring Academics, Armchair Philosophers and Anyone Else Who Wants to Sound Really Smart (2010)
