In "Sunset Boulevard," an episode from the PBS series focusing on great streets of the world, the 27 miles of Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles are traveled by an appropriately offbeat tour guide, songwriter Randy Newman. Beginning downtown, Newman visits the sites of some of the oldest settlements in Los Angeles, but before long he hops behind the wheel of a 1960s vintage Chevy convertible and he's driving westward. The neighborhoods of Echo Park and Silverlake are visited, and along the way Newman visits with local characters, including the proprietor of a diner who claims she doesn't want her place to become so trendy that her rent will get raised. Proceeding to Hollywood, Newman visits Sunset Sound, where the Doors, Led Zeppelin, and Newman himself all recorded. Artist Ed Ruscha meets up with Newman and shows off his book of photos of Sunset Boulevard, and to showcase the stretch of Sunset that winds through some of the most expensive real estate on earth, Newman accompanies a realtor for a tour of a mansion that once belonged to Jayne Mansfield. Writer, actor, and game show host Ben Stein appears to offer his own erudite commentary, comparing Sunset Boulevard to Rome's Appian Way. This quirky look at the quintessential L.A. street happens to be a great introduction to the city for those planning a visit, and it's worth watching just for the sheer fun of it. --Robert J. McNamara
