L.A. Daily Mirror Retro Shopping Guide

billy_wilder_auction

In 1989, Billy Wilder sold much of his art collection. The works are gone, but the auction catalog lives on. If you’re a hard-core Billy Wilder fan (and I am) it’s fun looking through the catalog – I was fortunate and saw the items on display at the Beverly Hills Hotel before the auction. Bidding on this particular copy (on EBay) starts at $5. Copies are also listed on bookfinder.com, for a lot more money.

In 2009, when the blog was at latimes.com, I did a long series of posts on Billy Wilder.
