Mine used to be Sunset Blvd., but it’s been replaced with The Apartment as of late. So many good ones.

I was wondering how long it would take for that to be brought up.

That's an Ernst Lubitsch film. Wilder contributed to the screenplay, but did not direct.

He made a lot of great movies but I’ll have to put another vote in for Ace in the Hole. One of the best movie endings ever.

SPOILER ALERT

Sabrina. One of my favorite Bogart movies. The scene where he dictates a memo to David while in the back seat of the car is great.
