DVD extra, 19 March 2004
Author: petershelleyau from Sydney, Australia

This making of documentary features footage from the film, stills (including those of the aborted original opening sequence), and interviews.

It's never explained fully why Louis B Mayer found the film so distasteful, though it is interesting that William Holden is described as much as a hasbeen as Gloria Swanson was when he was cast. We get the usual divided opinions about Sunset's Academy Award losses in favor of All About Eve, but also Nancy Olson (as the only surviving cast member) tells a funny story of how Holden's wife yelled "Cut. Dammit, cut" at the long take Wilder used for the balcony scene embrace. We also get Glenn Close commenting on the later Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.
