Sunset Boulevard (PG) - FILM SEASON - Blasts from the Past

Date: Wednesday 12th September 2018
Time: 19:30

Sunset Boulevard (PG)

Director: Billy Wilder. 1950

Starring Gloria Swanson, William Holden and Erich Von Stroheim.

Sunset Boulevard is the cruellest of all Hollywood's self-exposées.

Gloria Swanson plays a mesmerising, intense Nora Desmond, a forgotten silent movie star attempting her come-back.

She comes into contact with the new Hollywood, represented by William Holden's washed-up, cynical  screenwriter Joe Gillis.

Nora has Joe facilitate her screen return by having him edit her crazy script 'Salome', a challenging task that steers him complacently towards a gigolo's existence.

What is unusual is how realistic Wilder dared to be.

He used real names and real life.

Wilder and co-writer Charles Brackett have created a cruel, funny, realistic movie about movies, a brilliant satire on Tinseltown that still seems fresh today.

Blasts From The Past will be the theme for this year's St Ives September Festival Film Season.

Once again, organiser Wendy Watson has come up with a cracking selection of films for the annual silver screen extravaganza at St Ives Arts Club.

St Ives Arts Club, Westcott’s Quay, St Ives.
