SUNEST BOULEVARD is a two-fer: A perfect film AND the best movie ever made about Hollywood. Also, we think of ourselves as all modern and sophisticated here in 2023 and this thing rolled up as a STUDIO MOVIE in 19FUCKING50. And was a HIT! Unthinkable now that it would get made (especially with that ending) and find a wide audience. Btw, the Reader’s Department is the only place where good things happen in this story, and so you don’t have to worry—as you sport your t-shirt, hat, or tote bag—about becoming as DELUDED as Joe and Norma; you’ve got that Betty Schaefer energy going!
