"Alright, Mr. Demille, I'm ready for my close-up!" — Norma Desmond
Sunset Boulevard - Classics @ the Starlight

This 1950 film noir by Billy Wilder and starring Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond is a true classic. An aging silent film queen refuses to accept that her stardom has ended and hires a screenwriter to mastermind her comeback. He believes he can manipulate her, but soon finds he is quite wrong. His ambivalence about their relationship and her unwillingness to let go leads to a cavalcade of violence, madness, and death.
