Billy Wilder didn’t feel polish. “There is a city, but there is no country”

The film expert confirmed that Billy Wilder did not come from Socha Beskidzka, which toppled a legend associated with him. His mother actually came from Zakopane, while his father ran a network of station cafés located along the railway connecting Vienna and Kraków. Because of his profession, they had to travel constantly. Fate directed the marriage in such a way that pregnant Eugenia gave birth to Samuel (because that was his real name) in Soka Beskidzka.
