ENTER TV & Media Avatar Contest: Movies About the Movies

The category is movies about film people and filmmaking. TV shows and made-for-cable movies are included. They can be fact-based or fiction. They can be dramas or comedies or musicals or biographies, but no documentaries, please.

Usual avatar rules apply.

Roll film . . . aaaaaand . . . ACTION!

My entry: Sunset Boulevard.

^ I thought about using Chaplin, but I didn't want to be repetitive. I also have been using the "GIF of several shots I like" option a few times in the past couple of weeks. Which is basically to say, you hit my taste spot on.
