Tonight I watched Sunset Blvd. for the first time. How great is Gloria Swanson...just the right amount of crazy leading up to the meltdown. The ending reminded me of Streetcar Named Desire (one of my favorites). In each case a sympathetic figure is helping a disturbed woman make an exit with some dignity by helping her maintain her delusions. I really like the look of the film also (sets, costumes, unusual camera angles, etc.)
