Classic Movie: Sunset Boulevard (1950)
Watch it with us for the first time, or see it again with fresh eyes. This classic, directed by Billy Wilder, tells the story of Norma Desmond, an aging silent-film star who refuses to accept that her stardom has ended. She hires a down-on-his-luck opportunistic screenwriter to aid her comeback. But, he soon finds that her maniacal ego makes her harder to manipulate than he expected. Part noir, black comedy, and character study, the film starred Gloria Swanson and William Holden.
