SUNSET BOULEVARD (1950) 110 min.

An aging silent film queen refuses to accept that her stardom has ended. She hires a young screenwriter to help set up her movie comeback. The screenwriter believes he can manipulate her, but he soon finds out he is wrong. The screenwriters ambivalence about their relationship and her unwillingness to let go leads to a situation of violence, madness, and death.

"It continues to be a project of unquestionable importance and unrivaled influence more than 50 years later." - Mike Massie, Gone With the Twins
