THE AERO THEATRE TURNS 75
Billy Wilder Double Feature!
SUNSET BOULEVARD / ACE IN THE HOLE
SUNSET BOULEVARD
1950, Paramount, 110 min, USA, Dir: Billy Wilder

"I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille!" Director Billy Wilder created one of his most enduring masterpieces in this dark, glittering, poison-pen letter to all things Hollywood, told in flashback by screenwriter Joe Gillis (William Holden), whose final job is playing paid companion to egocentric, aging silent-film goddess Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson). With Erich von Stroheim. Academy Award Winner for Best Screenplay (Wilder, Charles Brackett and D.M. Marshman Jr.) and Score (Franz Waxman). The original Schwab’s drugstore figures prominently in the film, as do Paramount Studios and the still-standing Alto Nido apartments.


ACE IN THE HOLE
1951, Paramount, 111 min, Dir: Billy Wilder

Kirk Douglas is withering as the embittered, alcoholic reporter looking for his piece of the pie -- when the story of a man trapped in a cave-in falls into his lap, he exploits it to the hilt.
