Brilliant film from Billy Wilder focusing on struggling Hollywood screenwriter Joe Gillis (William Holden) who accidentally falls into the "tarantula arms" of faded silent screen star Norma Desmond (silent screen goddess Gloria Swanson) when he tries to elude the guys who want to repossess his car.

A couple of years ago, The Artist won the hearts of film fans all over the world as a much loved film that covered the transition from silent films to talkies in a fairly hopeful and uplifting manner.

Speaking of references, the entire film was filled with mentions of an "Old Hollywood aristocracy", like Darryl F Zanuck, Alan Ladd and Cecile De Mille, who even had a noticable cameo in the film.
