Product Description
Bruce Willis and James Garner are out to make a movie and solve a murder in Blake Edward's SUNSET, the fictional adventures of two of America's greatest real-life heroes.Willis (The Fifth Element, Die Hard) stars as Tom Mix - Hollywood's hottest action-hero who's been cast to play the legendary lawman Wyatt Earp. Trouble is, Earp (Garner, Twilight, Maverick) has been hired to work as a technical expert on the film - and this doesn't sit too well with the big at-the-top-of-his-career movie star Mix. Even worse... Earp doesn't take too well to movie moguls and the fancy studio life. So, Old West and New Hollywood collide and inadvertently become a vivid backdrop for one of the most shocking murder mysteries ever to scorch the silver screen. Come back to a lost time when movies were movies, murders were mayhem and heroes were just plain outrageous, in SUNSET... the action-packed adventure this side of Hollywood and Vine. It's the truth, every word of it... give or take a lie or two!

    3James Garner is in it! What else do you need?
    By Chainsaw
    Any Cinema with James Garner is worth watching! This movie was a spoof of the early movie industry, with a murder mystery thrown in. the story line was predictable and much of the acting by less well-known actors was terrible, but ... it had James Garner in it! Bruce Willis, too, played his spoof-part with tongue-in-cheek gusto. By the way, Tom Mix was one of the pallbearers at Wyatt Earps funeral - he was quite an admirer of Mr. Earp. If you are a James Garner fan, as obviously I am, I think you'll enjoy this movie. Oh ... another "plus" - if you are an antique car fan, the automobiles in this movie are absolutely pristine in their quality and appearance. My goodness - I can't recall when I've see a movie with that many classic (TRULY CLASSIC) automobiles. The movie is entertaining at the very least.

    5A Keeper
    By LBDDiaries
    This DVD is so hard to find now - I looked everywhere and they wanted upwards to $100 for this on other sites. I had it and lost it accidentally so when I discovered this here and, while high, at a great price compared to others (smile). It is a very funny DVD with Bruce Willis and James Garner being tongue-in-cheek funny. If you like either of these actors, you need to add this DVD to your collection!

    5Stylish Hollywood Western of the 1920's
    By Jack Zubritsky
    Wyatt Earp and Tom Mix, the silent film star were friends at the end of Earp's life. Mix was a pall bearer and he wept.
    But Sunset is the duo in happier times and it is a glossy gift to old time Hollywood. The movie was written and directed by Blake Edwards of Pink Panther fame. If you remember those movies, you will understand the pacing and panache of the movie.
    James Garner as Earp is sly and iconic. Bruce Willis as Mix is dashing and self assured (he produced the movie). It was not tremendously successful when it came out but it is a stylish and romantic treat. A friendship between the old west and the made up west that hits just the right notes.
    As with most of Edwards movies, the supporting players are as important as the leads. Malcom McDowell does another turn as the delightfully twisted director and Mariel Hemmingway , who many times has delivered her part woodenly is a pleasant surprise aided by Garner's megawatt charisma.
    Fun story, Stylish story
