#1. gloria swanson in sunset boulevard
are you kidding me?
gloria swanson as norma desmond is THE greatest performance of all time.
i don't want to give a lame summary of the picture, or opine about the beauty and intrigue and facial features responsible for carrying the reclusive actress into an over-the-top psychopathic superstar. i merely wish to bow down to gloria swanson, one of the greatest actors who ever lived. this is how it's done, boys and girls. respect.
*nominated for 1950 best actress oscar;
lost to judy holliday in born yesterday
greatest moment: see below
