He leans forward a bit from the waist. "Nice to meet you. Is it cold He has a Viennese accent and an old world manner quickly undone by a comic turn with his guest's coat. No place to put it. On the couch, then. Papers shuffled aside to make room to sit. Wilder settles into a chair with legs crossed, happily chomping on chewing gum, eyes magnified through his glasses and a constant questioning look on his face because of his wrinkled forehead. Actors love to work for this pug nosed cavalier. "I'm jokes the producer director writer Who has won six Academy Awards dur- ing his 40 years in Hollywood (in various categories ,for "The Lost "Sunset Boulevard" and "The "I'm happy when I work and I like everybody to feel com- fortable. We joke together, we discuss things. I don't order actors around." In addition to being easy going, Wilder is gifted and hard working a professional. That's why Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, stars of "The Front in- sisted that Wilder be signed to direct Universal's adaptation of the crackling Ben Hecht Charles MacArthur play. "I said I would be he says. "I was working on another screenplay at the time which wasn't going well. Stuck in some place, staring at the walls." The Hecht-MacArthur play, about Chicago news- papermen in 1929, is crammed with cynicism, something critics keep attributing to Wilder's work. That must have been an attraction. He is cynical, isn't he? It's enough to make him stop chewing. he says, eyes wider than ever. "I'm not a cynic, I'm an optimist. The cynicism in 'The Front Page' is Hecht's and MacArthur's. It was the am- bience of the newspapermen. "If I write a character like BILLY WILDER the shyster lawyer in The Fortune it doesn't mean I'm like that. I don't go out to depress people." He throws his arms out. "Besides, when I do sentimen- tal pictures, they fall flat on their can and nobody comes to see them." No matter -what he does, "everybody kibbitzes." It doesn't pay to listen to them. If he had listened to his father, who owned a chain of Harvey hotels throughout the Austro Hungarian Empire, he'd be a lawyer today. "I could have been an he jokesr "It's a going profession now." But Wilder wanted the movies. German film industry was very big then and we were all interested in He went to law school for a year to please his father, then worked as a cub reporter in Vienna and Berlin. "I covered he says. "Sports, crime just like in The Front I went in the middle of the night to get pictures of mothers whose daughters had been raped in the park. "One time I interviewed Cornelius Vanderbilt. I asked him how much money he had in his pocket. 'Seven he said. That Was about Wilder shakes his head.

For two years, knowing lit- tle English, he managed by "doing a little ghost writing in German for some people. I borrowed or sold a few things I'd saved from Germany. Finally, I got a job writing at Paramount and stayed with them for 18 years." He deposits his gum in an ashtray and there's no sign now of the personal energy that rushes through his films and which accounts, partially, for his survival at 68 in a business that consumes people. He's matter of fact about it. "Quite a few directors who are older than I am have en- he says.
