Sunset Boulevard ★★★★½

While there's some clear indication of how the cadaver end's up in the pool, that foreshadowing can be ignored by the talents of Wilder, Brackett and Marshman Jr's who all worked together to direct, produce, and write a finely crafted gothic about consequences of everlasting delusion as suffered by Swarnson's Desmond. Holden and Swanson play off of each other's misery's with emotional and cynical effectiveness that it keeps them afloat for the audience's attention in contrast to how they sunk in their talent-emasculated lives within the story.
