Hollywood Boulevard is a trenchant look at the underside of Tinseltown. Though the nominal

hero is a disillusioned screenwriter played by Robert Cummings (whose dialogue

anticipates the lines spoken by William Holden in 1950's Sunset Boulevard), the focus of the

story is John Halliday as a washed-up film star. Desperately, Halliday accepts the offer from

a sleazy 'tell all' magazine to write his memoirs. The actor's estranged family is devastated

by the resultant scandal, and out love for his daughter (Marsha Hunt), Halliday tries to break

his contract. But the publisher (C. Henry Gordon) threatens to ruin Halliday's comeback

attempt if he refuses to write the rest of his memoirs. In a scuffle, the publisher kills

Halliday, and the blame falls on the actor's daughter. But wise guy screenwriter Cummings

gets to the truth of the mystery. A slick B-plus crime melodrama, Hollywood Boulevard has

the added bonus of several well-known silent film personalities (Charles Ray, Francis X.

Bushman, Maurice Costello, Mae Marsh etc.) in cameo roles, as well as a guest appearance

by Gary Cooper.
