Sunset Boulevard weaves a magnificent tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition. Silent movie star Norma Desmond longs for a return to the big screen, having been discarded by tinsel town with the advent of ‘talkies’. Having escaped from repossession agents finds Joe Gillis at Norma’s faded, dilapidated mansion. “You used to be in pictures – you used to be big?” Joe asks, to which Norma responds, “I am big… it’s the pictures that got small!”. Their subsequent passionate and volatile relationship leads to an unforeseen and tragic conclusion.
