I've proposed some epilogues to Hollywood to be shown after the credits roll on some well-loved films. Perfect for those stories and characters you just want to go on and on and on…..

SUNSET BOULEVARD (1950): Shortly after her arrest for the murder of the unfortunate script-writer-gigolo Joe Gillis, Norma Desmond was vilified by the public as a self-indulgent and ridiculous has-been tossed aside by the studio system that had worshipped her 30 years earlier. Sentenced to a mental institution for being "emotionally inconvenienced during the commission of a Class A felony", she was treated with extensive electro-convulsive therapy along with insulin-shock, ice baths, and prolonged sitting in front of a mirror while being forced to make funny faces and lip-synching to Gene Autry records. Finally she was released on good behavior, and she retired to Malibu where she opened a health-food and yoga-with-yogurt spa. She changed her name to Normaste Desmond... and lived to be 98. Max continued to work for her....at the juice bar.....
