    Description

    Sunset Boulevard (Paramount, 1950). Insert (14" X 36").
    With Sunset Boulevard, director Billy Wilder brought to the screen a dark vision of Tinseltown that many consider to be one of the greatest films ever made. Featuring phenomenal performances by Gloria Swanson and William Holden, the film brought home three Academy Awards, after gaining eleven nominations. Wilder's vision presented the role of a lifetime for Swanson, who portrays a washed up and aging silent screen star that has latched onto a failing screenwriter, played by Holden. What unfolds is a brutal Hollywood caricature that has landed the film on numerous "best of" lists, including the 100 Best American Films of the 20th Century by the American Film Institute. This searing insert shows one pinhole each in the top and bottom borders, a minor right corner bend, and tears in the top and the right borders with linen tape on the verso. The poster has some horizontal creasing and still shows mild smudging in the borders and the remnants of an erased pencil line through the character's images. There has been some touchup to the upper pinhole, top border tear, and edge wear. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
