- Synopsis / Plot
- A bankrupt screenwriter (William Holden) takes refuge in the mansion of a faded star (Gloria Swanson) of the silent era, in order to escape the debt-collectors who are chasing after him. What he begins to realize however, is that Norma's psyche is no less of a dangerous place. A brillant comment on the meaning of fame.
