Performance of Gloria Swanson's Career,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sunset Boulevard (Special Collector's Edition) (DVD)
This film was the Performance of Gloria Swanson's Career, Flim Noir at it's best. My favorite scene in the film was when William Holden's characters parks his depressing post war 1946 Plymouth in Norma Desmond's garage and finds her 1932 Isotta Fraschini Laundulette touring car. A testament to who depressing the car market had become in 1950. We also see a young Jack Webb playing Holden's best friend in several scenes, noted Hollywood reporter Hedda Hopper, and legendary Silent era director Erich von Stroheim as Max, whose claim to fame was the 1924 Silent classic GREED. The star of the film is Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond and Swanson gives the performance of her career. This film is a must see for lovers of the old slient films.
