Trivia

When Norma is telling Joe about how rich she is she mentions a beach house and downtown real estate. Marion Davies owned a famous ocean-front mansion in Santa Monica. Norma Talmadge and Constance Talmadge were famous for owning downtown real estate in Los Angeles and San Diego.


Quotes

Joe Gillis: Yes, this is Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, California. It's about 5 o'clock in the morning. That's the homicide squad, complete with detectives and newspaper men.


Goofs

Wallace Reid died in 1923, three years before Paramount's Marathon Street studio opened, thus he could not have had a bungalow on wheels on the lot as Max had pointed out (unless of course, he was pointing towards Sunset and Vine where Paramount had its lot at the time of Reid's death).


Crazy Credits

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