Cameron Crowe’s mentor, filmmaking legend Billy Wilder, 95, passed away this past Wednesday in Los Angeles. Wilder is survived by his wife of 53 years, Audrey, and daughter Victoria. There will be no funeral, according to Daily Variety, but a public memorial will be held later this year. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

You can read the numerous stories about his life and career here: NY TimesDaily Mail, CNN, PBS: American Masters. There’s also a great list of Wilder quotes (From Cameron’s Conversations with Wilder) available here.
