I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille
Um, so...hope I didn't torment you all too much. It's Sunset Boulevard. What a strange story...the younger man, William Holden, is disgusted with life and seemingly incapable of carving out a place for himself, while the older woman has an almost demonic liveliness (as well as all that moolah). I had forgotten that at the beginning of the film, the Holden character walks in the funeral arrangements for Norma's pet chimp - bring anyone to mind?
