Not Rated | | Drama, Film-Noir
A screenwriter is hired to rework a faded silent film star's script only to find himself developing a dangerous relationship.
The Paramount songwriting duo are seen at the piano at Artie Green's New Years party. They are singing a parody of their song, "Buttons and Bows," from the movie The Paleface (1948), for which they won an Oscar in 1949, the year Sunset Boulevard (1950) was made.
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.
Norma tells Joe that she's bought a "revolver," but the gun is not a revolver.
The Paramount logo appears as a transparency over the opening shot. The words "Sunset Blvd." are shown stenciled on the curb of that street.
