"Without me, there wouldn't be any Paramount studio."

Gloria Swanson gives a career-defining performance as faded silent screen star Norma Desmond in Director Billy Wilder's dark and masterful film classic, Sunset Boulevard. William Holden is Joe Gillis, the young, down-on-his-luck screenwriter whom Norma drafts to help provide her with a workable script for her planned "return" to the modern-day screen. Erich von Stroheim is Max von Mayerling, Norma's devoted servant, who harbors a few personal revelations of his own. Hollywood has never taken a more ominous, compelling or electrifying look at Hollywood than in this brilliant, Oscar-winning tour de f-rce that still mesmerizes with its witty, sardonic script, unforgettable cast, and provocative storyline.
