The Bad and The Beautiful

Kirk Douglas is a ruthless film producer. Also starring Lana Turner and Dick Powell, directed by Vincente Minnelli. 

Ah, classic Hollywood! About Hollywood! In black and white! There are three stories, told in flashbacks, almost like a film noir. The film looks great. There are the 50s cars, and even, in one scene, you can see the iconic Hopper gas station pumps, and the Hollywood stuff is intriguing, like seeing that they did previews and asked for viewer comments even then, but the actual story, or stories, is less interesting and a bit hard to care about.
