FOR ADULTS ONLY! Many see this as Billy Wilder‘s greatest film and a classic for all time. It stars William Holden as Joe Gillis, an unsuccessful screenwriter, and Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond, a faded silent film star who draws him into her fantasy world where she dreams of making a triumphant return to the screen, with Erich von Stroheim as Max von Mayerling, her devoted servant. In the movie, Norma Desmond’s address is 10086 Sunset Boulevard in the film but in reality, the filming location was 641 S. Irving Blvd at the corner of Irving and Wilshire. See the home right before it was demolished in 1957.
