It’s not that common to see Hollywood films poke fun at Hollywood, so you can imagine how downright radical it was when the 1950 film Sunset Boulevard did just that. In the film — of which we’re giving away two DVDs — Gloria Swanson plays an aging silent-film queen, while William Holden plays a struggling young screenwriter who is held in thrall by her madness. These two roles ultimately became two of the silver screen’s most memorable characters. Winner of three Academy Awards, director Billy Wilder’s bizarre tale is a true cinematic classic. From the unforgettable opening sequence — a body found floating in a decayed mansion’s swimming pool — through the inevitable unfolding of tragic destiny, Sunset Boulevard is the definitive statement on the dark and desperate side of Hollywood.
