Sunset Boulevard (1950) NR – 110 min. 

Director Billy Wilder’s scathing indictment of Hollywood and its fickleness focuses on the imperious and fading silent film star Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) and the ambitious young screenwriter (William Holden) she takes under her wing to help craft her comeback – a relationship that ends in an untimely demise. Sunset Boulevard was nominated for 11 Academy Awards and ranked number 10 on AFI’s top 100 films of the 20th century.
