With the new version of A Star is Born due out in early October, it's a good time to dip into one of Hollywood's favorite playgrounds: films about stars, star-making, and the perils of success. From the late-70s SoCal porn world of Boogie Nights (pictured) to the backstage machinations of All About Eve to Peter O'Toole's scheming director in The Stunt Man, take a peek behind the curtain.

The Sunshine Boys

Directed by Herbert Ross

Showbiz Comedy, Reunion Films - Rated PG - 111 Minutes - 1975

It had been 36 years since George Burns appeared in a movie when he replaced his ailing friend Jack Benny in both the stage and screen versions of Neil Simon's The Sunshine Boys. The film adaptation paired him with Walter Matthau (wearing copious amounts of old man makeup) as a splintered comedy duo who have been asked to reunite for a television special to perform some of their classic material, but for Matthau's Willy, the old wounds are still raw.
