When Gillis turns into that driveway in Sunset Boulevard, he finds himself in an old mansion which seems to be deserted at first sight but upon entering, he recognizes a woman as Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson), formerly one of the great stars of the silent screen. She offers him a job reading the script she has been writing for her planned comeback (a return by her original words), and the writer accepts that offer as the only chance of making some money. Soon the former star will entrap him into her fantasy world in which she made herself believe that she is still big, there is no need for dialogues in the pictures, she is still a real star etc.moreless
