The highlights of the Sunset Boulevard DVD are a standout transfer and three 2002 documentaries. In "Sunset Boulevard: A Look Back" (26 min.), author Ed Sikov, actress Nancy Olson (who played Betty Schaefer), critic Andrew Sarris, and producer A.C. Lyles discuss the perfect cast, the alternate opening, and various anecdotes. "Edith Head: The Paramount Years" (13 min.) and "Franz Waxman and the Music of Sunset Boulevard" (14.5 min.) provide retrospectives on the legendary costume designer and composer. Sikov, the author of On Sunset Boulevard: The Life and Times of Billy Wilder, also provides a very informative if rather dry commentary track. Other features include a map spotlighting the Hollywood locations in the film, photo galleries, and two versions of the script for the original morgue opening, one of which is supplemented with silent footage cut from the picture. --David Horiuchi

Thank goodness that has not been done to this film.
As soon as the film behins, it grips you. And even though you know what happens at the very end, you can't take your eyes away.
Gloria Swanson, who was the greatest silent film star, almost plays a version of herself. She really had to put her ego aside to do it.
Then their are the other characters that play themselves including the great producer and the characters briefly seen at her card party.
William Holden is in a big fix. A movie writer who is broke and is forced to become her "boy toy."
Don't miss the best part at the end when Norma Desmond cracks up and you hear that famous line, "I AM READY FOR MY CLOSE UP, MR. DEMILLE."
The cinematography itself is pure art.
This movie is timeless. It's a slam at Hollywood & what gets done to actors once they are used up & spit out.
Gloria Swanson is fantastic, blending beauty, creepiness, & madness all into one. Holden is marvelous as a down on his luck writer who becomes a "kept man".
Carol Burnett did hilarious skits about Sunset Boulevard.
Damn, they just don't make movies like they used to.
