Vintage Sunset Blvd Collection 1949


Here is my vintage Sunset Blvd. collection. This is the earliest still I have seen - all are dated 1950 and this is dated 1949. It shows the first take of this very famous scene which was re-shot and later added to the final film. The portrait is a studio still on double weight paper. It shows Gloria Swanson in character as Norma Desmond. I hope you enjoy it. Authentication by me.
