Sunset Boulevard (movie)[edit]

This seems to be a possible Featured article. This is my first time submitting an article to Peer review, so please let me know what may be wrong with the article. JesseW 05:51, 14 Jan 2005 (UTC)

  • I agree - the film would make a great featured article. It needs quite a lot of work though, and needs to be expanded, and analysed in more depth. It's all possible though, because the film is one of the all time greats, there is bound to be a lot of resource material available. eg Billy Wilder, Gloria Swanson's autobiography etc. There must be a lot of critical comment available too. Casablanca (movie) was a Featured Article, so if you're looking for a point of reference that would be a good place to start. If you decide to work on it further, let me know, I'd be happy to help.

    • I've been intrigued with the idea of developing this article since it was listed here, so today I've added a lot of info, plus images. Just wanting to point out that I know what I've done is extremely rough. There is so far no critique of the film - and that's essential, so will work on that. I know the article as I've done it now, needs a lot of tidying up, but I wanted to make a start on it. Rossrs 14:59, 1 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Also have changed article name to just Sunset Boulevard (movie). If there were other significant films with the same title, it would be justified in having the year as part of the article name, but there haven't been. Rossrs 15:16, 1 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • There must be commentaries on the work somewhere, especially if it is a significant film. This is a good, brief overview, but is not comprehensive enough to be called a featured article. - Ta bu shi da yu 16:32, 29 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Wow. Well, I'm delighted with the work that Rossrs has done. I didn't even realize how much more needs to be done. I don't personally wish to commit to finding and creating a critique section, so I guess this should remain in the archive. Thanks, Ta bu shi for reminding me of it. Good luck Rossrs, and everyone.
