If You Haven’t Seen Sunset Boulevard

"Ok Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up." - Norma Desmond

We’ve all said it at some point or another… I know I think it every time someone points a camera at me ;), but apparently not everyone knows where it comes from, and I think that’s a problem. Sunset Boulevard (Billy Wilder, 1950) is one of the best films ever made - in fact, it’s the twelfth best American film ever made according to the AFI, meaning if you haven’t seen it well.. it’s time. 

This film noir drama is simultaneously horrific and romantic. The story follows Joe Gillis (William Holden), an unsuccessful Hollywood screenwriter, as he is, somewhat willingly, imprisoned by a has-been in her Sunset Blvd. mansion. Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson), one of my favorite characters of all time, was once a star of the silent era, even a muse of the great Cecil B. DeMille. Sadly, the introduction of sound marked the end of her popularity, and by the time we meet her she has withered to nothing but a delusional recluse. Joe needs a job and Norma, starved for attention, needs a screenwriter to help her return (don’t call it a comeback) to the big screen. 

Some of the film’s most comedic moments arise through the audience’s knowledge of the Hollywood industry, but you don’t need to know about film history to enjoy this movie. That being said, here are a few things that I think are interesting to know before going in: 

  • Norma’s faithful butler, Max von Mayerling, is played by Erich von Stroheim - a well known silent film director who made multiple films starring Swanson. 
  • Cecil B. DeMille, who plays himself, is also a well known director who started in the silent era. He is shown in the film on the real-life set of Samson and Delilah, and he really did call Swanson “Young Fellow” when they worked together. 
  • The ex-stars who play bridge with Norma are actual silent film stars as well; Buster Keaton, Anna Q. Nilsson and H.B. Warner. 
  • The reporter who telephones the Times at the end is Hedda Hopper, an actual gossip columnist for the L.A. Times during Hollywood’s golden age. 

While there are plenty of “insider” jokes to be heard, the real entertainment comes from watching Norma spiral downward from the brink of insanity to outright madness. For me, the best part of Sunset Boulevard is Swanson’s performance in a role I would gladly beg for. (If you know me, you know exactly why I’d love to play an out of control egomaniac). So, fellow millennials, try to look past the assumption that black & white equals boring and watch Sunset Boulevard.

How The West Coast Will Look Under 25 Feet Of Water
“Back in April, artist Nickolay Lamm put together a collection of illustrations of what some of the East Coast’s popular tourist destinations would look like under 25 feet of water, the potential sea level rise expected in the next few centuries. Since then, he’s added a few new destinations along the West Coast in California.”

Lamm’s previous photos (at the link above) were frightening enough. But considering that I am currently working in a building just off the center left of this screen, it’s doubly concerning.
