Tingo-CloseUp

Tingo is ready for his close-up.

Sunset Boulevard is a 1950 Academy Award-winning noir film starring William Holden and Gloria Swanson. The film is often remembered for its final moments, which introduced the phrase "All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up." into pop culture.

In the 1990s, the film was adapted to a stage musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber (with Don Black and Christopher Hampton).
