Billy Wilder’s classic foray into Hollywood Grand Guignol, a riveting tale of a down-on-his-luck screenwriter who falls into the clutches of a psychotic, has-been silent movie star, is a poison pen valentine to the studio system, offering the ultimate peek behind the tattered curtain of Tinseltown. Unleashing a performance of unforgettable intensity, screen legend Gloria Swanson plays Norma Desmond, a silent movie goddess who has been relegated to the film star graveyard by the Hollywood studios of the 1950s. Passed over by the arrival of “talkies,” Norma has retreated into obscurity within the walls of her crumbling mansion on Sunset Blvd., where her misguided belief in her own indestructibly has turned her into a demented recluse. Accompanied by her faithful butler Max, Norma has become lost in a world of her own creation. Dreaming of a comeback, she becomes embroiled in a deadly relationship with a young and struggling screenwriter names Joe Gillis (William Holden), who is held in thrall by her insanity, and whose own hunger for fame will lead him down the path to murder and madness. A Hollywood horror story framed as a jet-black film noir shot through with bizarre humor, Sunset Boulevard won three Academy Awards and instantly become the ultimate cautionary tale of the dark side of showbiz. (Dir. by Billy Wilder, 1950, USA, 110 mins. Not Rated)
