Worth seeing but nothing really new here, 16 March 2008
Author: preppy-3 from United States

This is included with 2002 DVD release of "Sunset Blvd". It's basically a VERY short (25 minutes) documentary of the making of the classic. There's nothing here that I really didn't know already but there are a few interesting bits here and there. It does go into the fact that Louis Mayer HATED the film when he saw it. He went to director Bill Wilder and told him off and Wilder responded . That's interesting but we're never told WHY Mayer hated the film and what Wilder's response was! The most interesting bits here are of Nancy Olson (the only surviving cast member) talking about making the film. She's full of life, kids her wholesome image and has a few little interesting stories. Glenn Close (who was in the musical version of "Sunset") also pops up with a few comments. I love Close but really--she's not needed. She really has nothing to add about the movie itself. So this isn't an in depth expose on the movie but a mildly interesting little documentary about the making of it.
