Sunset Boulevard (38:51)
The Top 100 Project enters the ‘50s with one of the most-celebrated films of that decade. Join us as we discuss Norma’s insanity, Joe’s selfishness, and Billy Wilder’s oh-so-cynical take on a Hollywood has-been and a never-will-be. Tune in!

Wilder’s movies, like Tarantino’s early movies, were terrific at creating root-for-able scumbag characters (especially Walter Neff and Chuck Tatum). And as good as Franz Waxman’s score is in this and the other movies you mention, my favourite is the one for ‘Bride of Frankenstein.’
Good Waxy music in A Place In The Sun too.
