Chuck Wolfe, UCSB Film and Media Studies Professor, provides the introduction and explores the notion of Hollywood as idea and ideal through a different film each week.
This week: Sunset Boulevard. In an effort to revive her faded career, movie star Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) strikes a misbegotten pact with a young, unemployed screenwriter (William Holden) in this caustic tale of Hollywood ambition by writer-director Billy Wilder, blending sharp, comic dialogue with the dark motifs of film noir.
Seating is limited. First come, first seated.
