$475.00

Vintage Classic Movie Film Noir Memorabilia Collectibles For Sale
Sunset Boulevard, 1950
Original Vintage Lobby Card Movie Poster (11x14")
Starring Gloria Swanson, William Holden, Erich von Stroheim


Terrific Vintage Lobby Card for this 1950 iconic classic.  One of the best cards of the set with Ms Swanson and Cecil B. DeMille in his powerful cameo scene.   You get the feeling Ms Swanson was playing her true life role at this point in her life. Being rejected by Hollywood in her old age.   Very good to excellent condition with minor paper loss in upper right border tip not affecting the image or the card's beauty at all.  * See enlargeable image above

Sunset Boulevard (Paramount, 1950). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Film Noir.
Billy Wilder took a close look at celebrity and the abusive Hollywood "machine" in this dark classic. This film noir gem concerns a writer (William Holden) who plays the confidant and companion to an aging silent film actress (Gloria Swanson) in order to further his career. The film also cast other major stars from the silent era including Erich von Stroheim, Buster Keaton and the director Cecil B. DeMille. And although the film is considered a noir masterpiece, it is also part horror film as we see Norma Desmond's (Swanson) descent into madness. Swanson was nominated for an Oscar as were Holden and von Stroheim. Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett won the Academy Award for Best Screenplay. 
Starring Gloria Swanson, William Holden, Erich von Stroheim, Nancy Olson, Jack Webb, Fred Clark, Lloyd Gough, Franklyn Farnum, Cecil B. DeMille, Hedda Hopper, Buster Keaton, Anna Q. Nilsson, H.B. Warner, Larry J. Blake, and Charles Dayton. Directed by Billy Wilder. An unrestored lobby card that displays signs of use. May include edge wear, or unobtrusive stains and smudges.  Please see full-color, enlargeable image above for more details. Fine/Very Fine.
