Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Wouldn't it be nice to overhear their conversation -German, or possibly Yiddish? Herzlich Willkommen, Herr Sutpen.
Where did they collaborate?
Preminger played the Camp Commandant in Stalag 17; a role I can't image Wilder not thinking of Erich von Stroheim for.
I think Wilder needed to practice on Otto before hiring von Stroheim for Sunset Blvd. Also, I can imagine von Stroheim turning the role of a camp commandant down, but Im sure Otto was only too happy to oblige.
