Sunset Blvd Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
Brackett and Wilder began working on the script for Sunset Blvd. in 1948, but they weren’t satisfied with the final cut. They hired an extra helping hand and were impressed by the critiques given. Trying to keep the full details of the story from Paramount Pictures and avoid the censorship of the Breen Code, the duo summited a few scripts at a time. The script contains many references to Hollywood and screenwriters, a lot of Joe Gillis’ cynical comments were based on this. Wilder preferred to leave analysis of his screenplays and films to others.
