Description

    Sunset Boulevard (Paramount, 1950). Italian 4 - Fogli (55" X 78") Ercole Brini Artwork.
    "All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up." Gloria Swanson was the perfect choice for the role of aging actress Norma Desmond in this sensational and dark look at Hollywood. Billy Wilder directed this nightmarish film noir thriller and it became one of his absolutely timeless classics. Erich von Stroheim and William Holden (as Joe Gillis) co-star, but it was Swanson's show and comeback vehicle. Who can forget the line, "You're Norma Desmond. You used to be in silent pictures. You used to be big." And Desmond's reply, "I am big. It's the pictures that got small." The film was nominated for 11 Oscars and took home three: Best Art Direction, Score, and Screenplay. This Italian 4-fogli, a Heritage first time offer, has some fold wear with crossfold separations and tears on the folds at the bottom border, smudges, and edge wear on the bottom and right border. There is a vertical crease on the right side. The gorgeous artwork of Swanson is by Ercole Brini. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
