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 film is openly referenced in Soapdish (1991), The Player (1992), Gods and Monsters (1998), Mulholland Drive (2001), Inland Empire (2006) and Be Cool (2005) while the closing scene of Cecil B. DeMented (2000) is a direct parody of the final scene of the 1950 classic.
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.
