Trivia: Sunset Boulevard
  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: People often misquote this movie's famous line as "I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille."
  • Executive Meddling: Probably for the better. The original cut of the film involved Joe Gillis's corpse talking to other corpses in the morgue, which made test audiences laugh uproariously.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Betty's fiance is Joe Friday.
  • Type Casting: Filmmakers just rehashed Norma whenever they wanted to give Gloria a part in a film after that, and some people still confused Swanson with Desmond.
