A screenwriter is hired to rework a faded silent film star's script only to find himself developing a dangerous relationship.
All of the silents stars mentioned by Norma, Joe, Betty, and Max were either dead or no longer active in films by 1950. These include Greta Garbo, John Gilbert, Rudolph Valentino, Rod La Rocque, Vilma Bánky, Mabel Normand, Marie Prevost, Pearl White, and Douglas Fairbanks.
Yes, this is Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, California. It's about 5 0'clock in the morning. That's the homicide squad, complete with detectives and newspaper men.
As the policemen run towards the pool, you can see the dead man's head lift up out of the water.
The Paramount logo appears as a transparency over the opening shot. The words "Sunset Blvd." are shown stenciled on the curb of that street.
