Sunset Boulevard
($26.98 Bluray, Paramount)

Gloria Swanson made film history with her iconic turn as aging silent-film star Norma Desmond in Billy Wilder’s 1950 film noir masterpiece, now finally on Blu-ray. While the plot is pretty basic—a hack screenwriter is hired to write a script for an eccentric has-been movie star—Swanson mesmerizes with a perfectly over-the-top performance that has since come to be one of the most imitated in film history. Extras include a making-of featurette and a documentary on legendary costume designer Edith Head.
