WATCH: Get Ready For Your Close-Up With The “Sunset Boulevard” Blue-ray

Sunset Boulevard, Billy Wilder’s 1950 masterpiece, stands as one of the greatest films of all time and probably the greatest film about Hollywood by Hollywood.

Starring Gloria Swanson in a career-reviving performance as tragic silent movie queen, Norma Desmond, and William Holden as the writer to whom she pins her dreams of a comeback, the film garnered an impressive 11 Academy Award nominations.

A newly-restored, high definition version of the movie has finally made its way to Blu-ray, and to celebrate, here are a few clips that demonstrate why Sunset Boulevard remains big…It’s just the pictures that got small.
