Rated 4 out of 5

“Sunset Boulevard” is a classic film noir movie released in 1950, directed by Billy Wilder and starring William Holden, Gloria Swanson, and Erich von Stroheim. The film tells the story of Joe Gillis, a struggling screenwriter who meets the faded silent film star Norma Desmond. Norma is desperate for a comeback and hires Joe to help her write a screenplay for her grand return to the big screen.

As Joe becomes more involved in Norma’s life, he realizes that she is delusional and lives in a fantasy world of her own making. She believes that she is still a major movie star, and she has an unhealthy obsession with her former director and ex-husband Max von Mayerling.

As their relationship becomes more complicated, Joe tries to escape Norma’s grip, but it leads to a tragic end. The movie’s haunting and iconic final scene, in which Norma makes her grand entrance down the staircase, uttering the famous line “All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up,” has become one of the most memorable moments in cinema history.
