    Description

    Sunset Boulevard (Paramount, 1950). Rolled, Fine/Very Fine. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A.
    Gloria Swanson showed true professionalism when she took on the role of aging actress Norma Desmond in this dark, sensational look at Hollywood. Billy Wilder directed the picture with Erich von Stroheim and William Holden (as Joe Gillis) co-stars, but it was Swanson's show and comeback vehicle. More rare than the style B half sheet, this A version has some signs of usage, including slight edge wear, mild creases, a couple of pinholes, and small tears. The poster also displays smudging, a few unobtrusive stains and tape stains, and has a vertical cut under the "P" of "Picture" that extends into Nancy Olsen's arm. There are a couple of strips of masking tape on the verso.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.

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