    Absolutely brilliant!!! Billy Wilder's somewhat depressing depiction of what humanity can sometimes represent is spot on! Kirk Douglas was wonderful!!! 5 years 2 months ago

    "How'd you like to make yourself a thousand dollars a day, Mr. Boot? I'm a thousand-dollar-a-day newspaperman. You can have me for nothing."

    Try to picture yourself saying that quote in a job interview.

    Billy Wilder is a genius.
