Sunset Boulevard is justifiably regarded as one of the finest films ever made. The tale of faded silent-era film star Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson), desperate to make a comeback, and the screenwriter she dragoons into working for her (William Holden) has been a favorite with critics and viewers since its premiere in 1950. Although the film noir classic loses its striking visuals in this radio adaptation, the fact that it sticks so closely to the original dialog and has Swanson and Holden reprise their Academy Award-nominated roles makes listening to this Lux Radio Theater production the next best thing to watching the film.
