    1. It's a not terribly engaging overview of Wyler's career, covering all of his sound films. The focus can be bizarre at times. For instance, you get a bunch of fairly obscure movies get an entire chapter apiece (with each chapter clocking in at about 20 pages), but then he'll spend only 6-7 pages on Ben-Hur as part of a chapter shared with two other movies. And the book gives Roman Holiday even shorter shrift. But we got 22 pages on Dodwsorth!
