Synopsis

"The Corner:" Ground Zero of Hollywood's Golden Age Join Los Angeles historian Marc Chevalier for an illustrated “living history” presentation on "the Corner," the social nexus of Hollywood's movie industry throughout its golden age. Gone today and practically forgotten, it's the greatest place you've never heard of, with an odd assortment of real-life characters like the woman known as the International Love Pirate. Plus, a screening of Billy Wilder's SUNSET BOULEVARD, which famously used the Corner (and especially Schwab's) as a scene location! SUNSET BOULEVARD, 1950, Paramount, 110 min. 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 aging silent-film goddess Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson).
