First five answers, five different moves.  And there are many other highly popular, highly influential BW movies as yet unnamed.  One reason for me he's the greatest writer/director of all time.

STALAG 17 (1953)

For one simple reason, above all other of Wilder's films...

...one of the most satisfying resolutions and endings of any movie I've ever seen!

Regarding Rick's comment, I knew this choice would be tough for people. Which is exactly why I picked Billy Wilder. I didn't want to drop something easy on people.

Another hard one. The Apartment is pretty near flawless, so that's mine.
