    No other motion picture about Hollywood comes near Billy Wilder's searing, uncompromising and utterly fascinating portrait of the film community.

    Performances by the entire cast, and particularly William Holden and Gloria Swanson, are exceptionally fine.
  3. What's not recognized enough is the indelible, self-sickened performance of William Holden as Desmond's boy-toy/hired hack.

    Sunset Boulevard is yet another amazing Billy Wilder movie that has its place in cinematic history. The performances are all great, and the story is moving and emotional without being cheesy. What a wonderful movie. Expand
