Sinopsis:
Remek delo Billyja Wildera Sunset Boulevard je crna komedija koja ostaje najupamćenija kao napad na prazninu i taštinu filmskog biznisa sa Williamom Holdenom kao mladim i propalim scenaristom Joeom Gillisom. Ispričan u flashback-ovima sada preminulog pisca, film otkriva seriju događaja koji su ga doveli do toga da završi plutajući u bazenu. Pošto nije uspeo da proda svoje poslednje delo, Joe seda u auto i odlazi u naizgled napuštenu vilu na Sanset Bulevaru. Uskoro otkriva da se na imanju nalazi bivša boginja nemih filmova Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) i njen sluga Max (Erich von Stroheim), koji podseća na zombija. Saznavši da je pisac, usamljena ali još uvek bogata žena nudi mu veliki novac da ostane u kući i napiše scenario za njen "povratak". Uprkos savetima okoline da ode odatle, Joe je očajan i prihvata posao, ne sumnjavši u ludilo nedođije u koju je ušao...
