(1950) Written and directed by Billy Wilder. William Holden, Gloria Swanson, Erich von Stroheim. (110 min.)

A crumbling California palazzo is haunted by a reclusive silent-screen star and her obsequious butler. Joe Gillis, on the lam from the repo man, stumbles in, drawn into a web of egomania, delusion, and desire; a former movie siren’s fate rides on her luxurious 1929 Isotta Fraschini limousine.

“The finest movie ever made about the narcissistic hellhole that is Hollywood.” (BBC)
