Kind of slow--even at 14 minutes!

This is included as an extra on the 2002 DVD release of "Sunset Blvd". It's a short piece on costume designer Edith Head who designed the costumes for "Sunset" and hundreds of other movies. Along the way she won 8 Oscars and is now considered to be a legendary figure. I agree that Head was a genius--but this short is pretty flimsy. If you're looking for any personal insight into her life forget it. It is somewhat interesting to see her sketches and final designs for the movies (Grace Kelly's wardrobe for "To Catch a Thief" is stunning) but I was basically bored. Also one of the narrators is a guy wearing lipstick and who has a seriously bad perm. He knows about Head and her costumes but really! I question the judgment of using a guy who looks like a reject from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". His appearance at first makes it impossible to concentrate on what he's saying. Head deserves better than this short. Still--it's better than nothing!
