** Norma Desmond's idea for her comeback vehicle - a Biblical epic about Salome - is regarded as laughably ridiculous by [=DeMille=] and the other Hollywood types. However, not only was an actual mind-bogglingly awful ''Salome'' film (starring Creator/RitaHayworth) produced in 1953, but numerous filmmakers throughout the rest of the '50s (including [=DeMille=] himself) would turn to Biblical epics as a way of competing with the television audience, and some of these efforts turned out to be every bit as schlocky as Norma's. Furthermore, DeMille's current production when Norma pitches her script is Samson and Delilah, which was a critical and commercial success. Norma's script was bad, and she was out of touch with contemporary styles, but her selection of genre was appropriate, even slightly progressive.

** He has evolved along with the medium. Norma, meanwhile, wants to pick up where she left off, making a new picture in a style that died twenty-five years ago, in which she plays a sixteen-year-old. She also is attempting to make a film with minimal amounts of dialog, unable to accept that silent films aren't around anymore.
