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.
When crew members asked Billy Wilder how he was going to shoot the burial of Norma's monkey, one of the film's most bizarre scenes, he just said, "You know, the usual monkey-funeral sequence."
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.
During the bridge game with the "waxworks" the auto repo men magically appear at Norma's door, but no doorbell is ever heard.
The Paramount logo appears as a transparency over the opening shot. The words "Sunset Blvd." are shown stenciled on the curb of that street.
