One, Two, Three is a (1961) American comedy film directed by Billy Wilder and written by him and IAL Diamond, based on the 1929 Hungarian one-act play Egy, kettö, három by Ferenc Molnár. The comedy features James Cagney, Horst Buchholz, Pamela Tiffin, Arlene Francis, Leon Askin, Howard St. John, and others.[1] It would be Cagney's last film appearance until Ragtime, 20 years later.[2] The film is primarily set in West Berlin during the Cold War, but before the construction of the Berlin Wall, and politics is predominant in the setup. Diamond and Wilder's social satire and sharp humor skewer targets on all sides of the divide — capitalists and communists, Americans, Germans, and Russians, men and women alike exhibit their own weaknesses and quirky foibles. As in Avanti! (1972), the humor of the film is partly based on the contrast between people from different cultures.
