    Description

    Sunset Boulevard (Paramount, 1950). Folded, Fine. Trimmed Belgian (14" X 19.5").
    This rare Belgian poster features superb portraits of cast members from Billy Wilder's masterful film noir. The picture begins with one of the grimmest openings in all of cinema--with the lifeless body of the protagonist narrator Joe Gillis (William Holden) floating in a pool. The ultimate movie about Hollywood, Sunset Boulevard stars some of the era's cinematic royalty including: Gloria Swanson, Erich von Stroheim, Cecil B. DeMille, Buster Keaton, and H.B. Warner. Swanson looks every bit the maniacal diva on this poster, punctuated by bright colors. The imprint area was trimmed by several inches but not into the artwork. There is a snipe pasted to the upper imprint area and a chip off of the upper left corner.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
