This is an absorbing collection of interviews spanning the entire oeuvre of the blockbuster Hollywood director of "Ben Hur", "Wuthering Heights", and "Funny Girl". William Wyler (1902-1981) was one of the most respected and successful directors of Hollywood's Golden Age. During a career spanning fifty-years, he won three Academy Awards and received 17 nominations, helped more than 30 actors receive Academy Award nominations, and directed some of Hollywood's most enduring - including "Ben Hur", "Funny Girl", "Mrs. Miniver", and "Wuthering Heights". "William Wyler: Interviews" spans his entire career and includes three previously unpublished exchanges. Despite the accolades, Wyler has not received the kind of academic and critical appraisal lavished on contemporaries such as John Ford, Orson Welles, Frank Capra, George Stevens, and Billy Wilder. In his later interviews he seems good-natured about this neglect, but it clearly rankled. He dismisses detractors by explaining that he was always interested in trying out new forms, variety being more important to him than mining the same territory.
