    Description

    Sunset Boulevard (Paramount, 1950). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Widely considered to be director Billy Wilder's masterpiece, this is the story of Joe Gillis, a young screenwriter (William Holden) who becomes involved with fading silent film starlet Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson), who has fallen into Hollywood obscurity as her devoted chauffeur Max (Erich von Stroheim) looks on. Mae West, Mary Pickford, and Pola Negri were all offered - and declined - the role of Norma before Swanson accepted the part. This great portrait card has pinholes in the top corners, a smudge in the bottom border, tears in the bottom and top borders, and a bend in the top left corner, but is otherwise in superb condition. Fine.
