Sunset Boulevard (1950) will be discussed.
One of cinema's greatest director and actor pairings was that of Billy Wilder and William Holden. Sunset Boulevard is the quintessential Hollywood film about Hollywood, where the industry of illusion disintegrates into the dark depths of delusion, from satire to tragedy. This is a story of faded glory and self-serving ambition.
View the film at home; available on Kanopy (free streaming service - information on access is available on the Library’s website). The DVD is available for request by contacting 223-6228, ext. 145.
