“Sunset Blvd.” quotes(1950)
Plot – Joe Gills is a screenwriter with financial difficulties. He runs away from the creditors and arrives in an apparently abandoned villa. Norma Desmond, an old silent movies diva, lives here. The actress, who’s faithful to the old-school cinema and intentionally ignores everything that is new, invites Joe to live in the villa to work together on a great storyline, with Norma as main character. Joe accepts, but when he realizes that the old woman is in love with him, he runs away.
