DescriptionSunset Boulevard (Paramount, 1950). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
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 took 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. Prior to professional restoration, this searing poster displayed fold wear and separation, pinholes, thin creases, and a few small chips and tears. There was a slight trim along most of the outer edge of the right border that has been replaced. The poster is a fantastic presentation piece after receiving these corrections.
Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
