Frenchman Philippe Petit of Nemours, France, on August 7th 1974, attempted the impossible : a high wire walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center 1,368 feet (417 m) in the air, that lasted 45 minutes and ended with him getting arrested. Philippe’s routine and life became the subject of a very poetic documentary made in 2008 named Man on Wire (directed by James Marsh), but maybe not as poetic as these photos, shot by his friend who hid with him overnight in the tower, in order to install the wire.

No list of screenwriters could ever be complete without the one and only Billy Wilder.
Wilder made use of his scripts to transgress Hollywood censorship by depicting taboo topics to the American mainstream, such as cross-dressing in Some Like It Hot and addiction in The Lost Weekend. To his credit are some of the US most classical films and spellbinding noirs, such as Double Indemnity (1944), The Lost Weekend (1945), Sunset Boulevard (1950), Some Like It Hot (1959), The Apartment(1960).
Hotel del Coronado, where Some Like it Hot was filmed in 1958 and thus became an iconic place, commemorated Billy Wilder with the stamp you see below.
