(Yes, dear listeners, we also did a full episode on Sunset Boulevard over on the parent podcast Reel Education back in 2014. The two shows are different. The first one features Melissa’s full barrage of trivia; this one is more dedicated to our raw reactions after seeing the film in a packed theater.)
We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because wow, it’s a great movie. This film is currently available pretty much everywhere: Netflix Streaming, Amazon Instant, Vudu, Google Play, and YouTube.
Join us on April 21st for our episode on Caged!
