A Star is Born (1954)

Norman Maine (James Mason) is a world-renowned movie star who has it all, including a crippling drinking problem. His latest drunken antics see him disrupting a variety show he was supposed to be appearing at, and he finds himself dancing on stage with Esther Blodgett (Judy Garland), who was singing and dancing whilst accompanied by the Glenn Miller Orchestra. 1,227 more words

Review

Oscar Got Away

Many people are familiar with the 1976 movie A Star is Born. A Barbra Streisand showcase that just happened to feature Kris Kristofferson. This movie did not properly encapsulate the classic tale of the original A Star is Born, because of Streisand’s ego. 763 more words

Bradley Cooper Hopes To Direct and Co-Star with Beyoncé in ‘A Star Is Born’ Remake

Ah, A Star Is Born — ageless and evergreen. The classic tale of a future has-been eclipsed by the rising stardom of his more talented wife has been remade more times in Hollywood than Kim Kardashian’s changed lovers. 310 more words

The Happenings

Is any movie worth a fourth swing at it?

To me, “A Star is Born” means a drunked-up rocker played by Kris Kristofferson doing the right/wrong/right/wrong dance with a wild-eyed optimist of a young singer played by Barbra Streisand. 166 more words
