Directed by
Billy Wilder

Billy Wilder's classic acerbic look at 1950s Hollywood was nominated for 11 Oscars and is probably the first film to have the opening narration spoken by a corpse. Joe Gillis is a penniless screenwriter who pitches up by accident at the mansion of silent star Norma Desmond, who is still dreaming of a comeback. She inveigles him to stay and work on her script but, with time, he becomes her gigolo, under the watchful eye of butler Max Von Mayerling.
