    Description

    Sunset Boulevard (Paramount, 1950). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B.
    Perhaps no film has delivered such enduring lines as this masterpiece. Considered by many to be one of the greatest movies ever made, Sunset Boulevard is a dark and disturbing look inside Hollywood, captured through the brilliant direction of Billy Wilder and the extraordinary performances by William Holden and Gloria Swanson. Swanson is the archetypal aging former star, living in near seclusion, still a big Hollywood star in her own mind but forgotten by everyone else. Holden turns in a career-transforming performance in his role as the young, "kept" screenwriter. Nominated for 11 Academy Awards, including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Picture, it won three, and was included in the first group of films selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. It ranks highly in the American Film Institute's list of the 100 best American films of the 20th century. This dramatic half sheet has edge wear, creases in the top right and lower left corners, and some smudging in the white field, but displays beautifully; a striking piece from one of Hollywood's most lauded films. Rolled, Very Fine.
