It was awesome! Gloria Swanson was amazing even on the big screen! ☺️

:D Wow, I'd like to see that in a theatre. Was this your first time seeing it? Didn't Gloria Swanson give a delightfully creepy performance? And Erich von Stroheim is, for the most part, so low key in contrast with his reputation from the silent film days.

I know Anna Q. Nilsson is in it—and some other silent star I can't remember—? I didn't know who she was when I saw it back years ago. I'd like to watch it again sometime and see if I can notice her.

No, I have seen it too many times to count. She is amazing in it! She is amazing in everything, really. I think Erich von Stroheim is awesome, too. It's kind of funny how someone can get a reputation, but it's hard to imagine them like that, and others you can tell right away that the rumors are true. Anna Q. Nilsson, Buster Keaton, and H.B. Warner make cameos in Sunset Blvd during a bridge game the four are playing. It was thrilling to see Buster on the big screen, even if it was just five seconds.
I definitely shed a good amount of happy tears during certain scenes of the film. It's great to see these movies in the theater.
