Blake Edwards at his best.
on 25 March 2006
Tom Mix (Bruce Willis) is going to make a film based around real events in the life of Wyatt Earp (James Garner)and so they wheel earp out to Hollywood as an advisor in the film. Thats the plot in a nutshell, but it is the relationship between the two guys which is at the heart of this film.
Funny and sad, this is a movie above all knowledgable about how vintage Hollywood was below the glossy surface but it shows it with wit, a sadly vanishing quality to-day.
I have watched it so many times and it never fails to entertain.
SOB and Sunset both reveal Blake Edwards' love for the movie world but based in the reality of its' foibles.
