Charles Brackett, Billy Wilder
William Holden, Gloria Swanson, Erich Von Stroheim
A screenwriter is hired to rework a faded silent film star's script, only to find himself developing a dangerous relationship.
Score: 79% Best Streak: 8
One of THE Noir movies of all time. The return of Gloria Swanson is a triumph and the film’s plot unfolds so intelligently, with respect for the audience and a real quandary over whose side any of us are meant to be on. With very little resolution at the end.
