    Description

    Sunset Boulevard (Paramount, 1951). Rolled, Fine/Very Fine. Full-Bleed Finnish Poster (15.5" X 23.75").
    Billy Wilder, long admired for his screenplays and his cinematic direction, delivered one of his true masterpieces of film making with this dark descent into the madness only Hollywood could create. Gloria Swanson is the aging actress Norma Desmond who dreams of a comeback and hires Joe Gillis (William Holden) to write her film that will return her to stardom. The dialog in this picture is still considered to be some of the best ever written for a film. This poster has light edge wear, soft creases, pinholes, very minor chips, and small tears. Also present is some faint staining, but this mostly affects the background. There are some adhesive remnants and a piece of paper tape on the verso.
