Put on your your finest fur and hop in your star vehicle (an Isotta-Fraschini, naturally) as we drive down Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard! Jimi and Tommy chat about film noir, lazy rhymes, and Patti LuPone’s Andrew Lloyd Webber memorial pool.

Check out this smokey, vintage trailer for the original movie version of Sunset Boulevard.

Much to Tommy’s chagrin, we’ve talked Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals a few times before on the podcast. Check out our coverage of Phantom and Cats.

Yes, Tommy has an obsession with Murder, She Wrote. No, it’s not a problem…

And today on Jim and Tomic’s Video Game Happy Hour, it’s the point-and-click classic Grim Fandango.

Want to relive the whole newspaper-reading, floor lamp-heaving moments for yourself? Check out Patti LuPone’s Memoir.

Or, for a quick look into the fiasco (and discussion of the ALW memorial pool) check out this New York Times article.

Jimi’s favorite: Elaine Page singing With one Look. …take a look at it…get it?


One of the songs in the original production of this show was specifically written to accommodate the leading lady’s tiny lungs. Interestingly, this is not the first time a song has been written to accommodate this actress. What show is it?
