Sunset and Vain

On the screen, Norma's glamour would thrill
Showbiz queen learns that drama can kill
When she's violent to Holden
It ain't silent or golden
Final scene played as ham for DeMille.

David Cairns

Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) vamps in the dramatic final sequence in Sunset Boulevard (Billy Wilder; 1950).
