Image from the film Sunset Boulevard
Arguably the most biting satire of Hollywood ever made, writer/director Billy Wilder employed silent-era star Gloria Swanson and silent-era director Erich von Stroheim as two of the three center pieces of this deliciously witty and deeply creepy story of a faded star trying to mount a comeback to a Hollywood studio system that has forgotten her. Rounding out the trio is William Holden, rarely in better form as the broke screenwriter hired—and then held captive—by Swanson’s aging star. Contains mild violence. (2K DCP Presentation)
