Boulevard of Broken Dreams: A Trip Down the Sunset Strip

Barney Hoskyns, MOJO, January 1994

SUNSET BOULEVARD: the very name is synonymous with dreams, unrealities, tableaux of palm trees and convertibles in the golden light of southern California. Billy Wilder bestowed it upon one of his greatest films, and Andrew Lloyd Webber cashed in 43 years later.
