Sunset Boulevard is Franz Waxmans 1950 Academy Award-winning masterpiece. During his career, Waxman received 12 Oscar nominations, winning in consecutive years for Sunset Boulevard and A Place in the Sun.
Sunset Boulevard, the 1950 Billy Wilder film, was scored by Franz Waxman. His theme for Norma Desmond was based on tango music, inspired by her having danced the tango with Rudolph Valentino. This style was contrasted with Joe Gillis's bebop theme. Waxman also used distorted arrangements of popular film-music styles from the 1920s and 1930s to suggest Norma Desmond's state of mind.
The American Film Institute ranked Waxman's score for Sunset Boulevard #16 on their list of the greatest film scores.
