    About the Film

    Billy Wilder's classic tale of a Hollywood screenwriter who "ends up in the swimming pool" of a fading"silent movie legend" is one of the most acidic, satiric and darkly comic commentaries on HOLLYWOOD, the delusion of stardom and the lowly place occupied by writers in the film firmament. Gloria Swanson shines as Norma Desmond who lives in her own dilapidated world of false grandeur and grandiose delusion.

    Winner of 3 Oscars including Best Writing, Story and Screenplay
