Norma Desmond is once again ready for her close-up. Because one of the greatest classics of all time is finally getting the Blu-Ray treatment.
Originally released in 1950, Sunset Boulevard is also one of the most quotable films ever.
What queen hasn’t spouted out, “We didn’t need dialogue. We had faces!”
Or, “I am big. It’s the pictures that got small.”
Now, the movie’s been restored to a level that’s grand enough to make even Norma Desmond beam with pride. Plus, special features include a “Making of Sunset Boulevard” featurette, photo galleries and a “Music of Sunset Boulevard” featurette, among many other delightful tidbits.
So whether you’re re-watching the film for the 100th time or you’re a new gay ready to advance your pop culture knowledge, there’s never been a better time to visit Sunset Boulevard.
Because those old men buying you drinks at the bar will just love it when you sing show tunes and quote black-and-white movies. You can finally be a trick that does tricks.
What a concept.
