DescriptionSunset Boulevard (Paramount, 1950). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
Gloria Swanson enjoys the role of a lifetime as aging silent screen siren Norma Desmond in this gripping film noir thriller about madness, obsession, and murder. William Holden is Joe Gillis, a desperate screenwriter in 1950 Hollywood who first becomes Desmond's employee, then her lover, and finally her victim. Offered here is the extremely attractive and desirable style A one sheet, with its haunting image of Swanson. There have been corrections made to edge and fold wear, fold separations, mild creases, and a few tears. Also addressed were minor chips in the folds and a couple of slivers of paper loss at the side edges. The poster displayed bleedthrough in the image from writing on the verso, and airbrushing has been applied to the borders and upper red background. Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
