Hollywood's Most Powerful Dramatic Actresses (15 person items)

"Sterling Performances ~ Another example of the one-hit wonder performance, Gloria Swanson is solely remembered by film buffs for her iconic turn as delusional faded silent starlet Norma Desmond in Billy Wilder's savagely caustic masterpiece Sunset Boulevard (1950). Her Oscar-nominated performance is legendary for its exploration of what was to come for modern-day Hollywood: vanity, surgical procedures to preserve youth, eccentricity and comebacks. Norma Desmond is the desperate Hollywood casual"
