Los Angeles: Paramount, 1950. Collection of ten vintage black and white reference photographs, wide margin, single weight, all being candid shots from the set of the film. Photographs prominently feature images of Gloria Swanson on the set, intimate moments between director Billy Wilder and Swanson, and an occasional appearance by actor William Holden as well.
A down-on-his-luck screenwriter (William Holden) stumbles into the home of a forgotten movie star (Gloria Swanson), becoming enmeshed in her deranged plan for a comeback. A kingpin in the pantheon of films about Hollywood, yet another masterpiece from Wilder, his urban noir counterpart to the daylight rural world of "Ace in the Hole" (1951). Winner of three Academy Awards, and nominated for another eight, including Best Picture. Set in Hollywood, shot there on location.
Prints 8 x 10 inches (20.5 x 25.5 cm), images 3.5 x 4.5 inches (9.5 x 11.5 cm). Near Fine, with a couple of short closed tears and creases at the extremities.
