Recorded at Wavenly House in New Canaan, the discussion includes everything from conversation about the first time Wilder met frequent collaborator Mel Brooks, the experience of being kissed on the lips by Zero Mostel, the wonder of working opposite Lee J. Cobb in a television production of +Death of a Salesman, and the experience of working on his Academy Award-nominated screenplay for Young Frankenstein. Additional discussion about Wilder's tragically brief marriage to the late Gilda Radner, his later union to Karen Boyer, his experiences in acting on stage and screen, his semi-retirement, and his experiences writing the popular romantic novel My French Whore offer a well-rounded look at a versatile entertainer who has dedicated his life to making people laugh.
