    Billy Wilder Stalag 17 Production Archive. Stalag 17 is one of the classic POW films of all time, a brilliant mix of comedy and melodrama, masterfully directed by Billy Wilder and sparked by William Holden's Oscar-winning performance. This lot contains five folders of production information on this powerful and well-remembered film, chocked with so much material that a reader will feel he or she actually experienced the shoot of the film. Includes: contract and salary information for the various actors, including carbon copies of most of the contracts; daily production reports, including who worked what days on what sets and for how long; weekly production cost sheets; additional production budget information; and the shooting schedule and daily call sheets. Such intimate documentation of the making of a film rarely becomes available or, indeed, even survives; a truly remarkable collection of behind-the-scenes facts and figures on an unforgettable film. From the Billy Wilder Archive.
