Sunset Boulevard

Wilder, Billy
Genre: 
Gloria Swanson, as Norma Desmond, an aging silent-film queen, and William Holden, as the struggling young screenwriter who is held in thrall by her madness, created two of the screen's most memorable characters in SUNSET BOULEVARD. Winner of three Academy Awards, director Billy Wilder's powerful orchestration of this bizarre tale is a true cinematic classic. From the unforgettable opening sequence - a body found floating in a decayed mansion's swimming pool - through the inevitable unfolding of tragic destiny, SUNSET BOULEVARD is the definitive statement on the dark and desperate side of Hollywood. Winner of Best Writing, Story and Screenplay and nominated for 8 other awards, including Best Director and Best Picture, at the Academy Awards. Winner of Best Motion Picture - Drama, Best Director, and Best Actress - Drama (Gloria Swanson) at the Golden Globes. Chosen for preservation by the National Film Preservation Board, USA. "Still the best Hollywood movie ever made about Hollywood." - Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
