Original Paramount Pictures Insert Poster (14x36). Paper-Backed. Very Fine.

Paramount Pictures Original U.S. insert card poster (14x36) for the Billy Wilder directed masterpiece SUNSET BLVD. (1950). Curiously the official title of the film, SUNSET BLVD., differs from the title on the poster SUNSET BOULEVARD. Such are the sometimes inexplicable incongruities of the world of film posters. The film stars William Holden, Gloria Swanson, Erich von Stroheim, and Nancy Olson. Swanson gives a knowing and memorable performance as the aging silent screen goddess Norma Desmond, who has turned into a demented recluse. Norma dreams of a comeback and to this end begins a relationship with a young hack writer (Holden), but her dreams of a comeback are wildly misplaced. The film was nominated for eleven Academy Awards, including acting nominations for Swanson, Holden, Stroheim, and Olson. The film won three Oscars: Best Screenplay, Best Musical Score, and Best Art Direction. This original insert is has been paperbacked, and presents very nicely indeed. Classic art on the poster shows the obsessed Swanson in full diva mode. The knotted strip of film indicates that true love for faded movie stars can be a tangled love indeed. Condition is very fine. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is an authentic, vintage U.S. insert poster for this film. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
