John Landis on

Sunset Boulevard

Released 1950
Distributor Paramount

Billy Wilder royally p.o.’d most of the Hollywood establishment with this devastatingly dark yet moving take on the tragic decline of silent movie queen Norma Desmond (an unforgettable Gloria Swanson), pushed aside by an unfeeling industry. One of the all-time greats. “I AM big! It’s the PICTURES that got small!”
