A screenwriter is hired to rework a faded silent film star's script only to find himself developing a dangerous relationship.
Norma's bed originally belonged to French actress and singer Gaby Deslys. Universal bought it on her death in 1920 and it was used in several movies, most notably in The Phantom of the Opera (1925).
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.

The Paramount logo appears as a transparency over the opening shot. The words "Sunset Blvd." are shown stenciled on the curb of that street.
