Billy Wilder’s strange and poignant elegy to Hollywood’s silent era is one of the great American movies. It tells the story of Joe Gillis (Holden), a struggling screenwriter who is drawn into the deranged fantasy world of former silent star Norma Desmond and her dreams of making a triumphant return to the screen.

Part-film noir, part-black comedy and part-horror movie, Wilder’s spell-binding classic unforgettably lays bare both the sad grotesquerie and mad magnificence of the Hollywood dream factory.

Starring Gloria Swanson & William Holden. Directed by Billy Wilder.
