Part of our Play It Cool annual summer rep series!
This year we are focusing partially on ‘Hollywood on Hollywood’ as we prepare for the new movie ‘Once Upon A Time in Hollywood’ which opens July 26!
In Billy Wilder’s eternally classic film, perhaps the ultimate Hollywood commentary, aging screen star Norma Desmond (the legendary Gloria Swanson) and down on his luck screenwriter Joe Gillis (classic leading man Willam Holden) cross paths as Norma seeks a fantasy filled return to the big screen and Joe seeks a steady gig. Nominated for 11 Academy Awards, winner of three, Sunset Boulevard is the best of Hollywood telling a story about the worst of Hollywood. Co-starring the great silent film director Erich von Stroheim, Nancy Olson, and as themselves Cecil B. DeMille along with silent film stars Buster Keaton, Anna Q. Nilsson, and H.B. Warner.
