Sunset Boulevard

Post  scotty2hotty on Mon Jun 15, 2009 7:44 pm

Has anyone watched Sunset Boulevard from 1950? It stars William Holden and Gloria Swanson. She plays faded 1920s movie star Norma Desmond and attempts a comeback with the help of Holden's character. It is a true classic and I couldn't stop watching it. Norma Desmond is so over the top and mentally unstable....she reminds me of aging pageant girls who can't let go.
I saw this movie on Turner Classics this weekend and I would give it 5 stars!

Yes Gloria Swanson portrays Norma Desmond. I think you would like it. Let me know if you watch it! This is one of those classics that I want to add to my dvd library.

LOL! Yes indeed--but you can't go wrong with either one--a classic movie or drinking at the beach!

Yes, and I sure Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) would approve of cocktails on the beach--as long as she was the center of attention! HAHA!!!!
