A Star Is Born Films 1937 – 1976

STORY: A young actress meets Hollywood success and marries a famous leading man, whose star wanes as hers shines brighter.

1937 VERSION REVIEW: Abrasive romantic melodrama which is also the most accurate study of Hollywood ever put on film.

1954 VERSION REVIEW: Musical remake which begins very strongly and has two splendid performances, but suffers in the second half from a lack of writing strength and heavy post-production cutting. The numbers add very little except length.

1976 VERSION REVIEW: Interminable remake set in the pop world amid screaming crowds and songs at high decibel level; also an insufferable piece of showing off by the star. But some of the handling has style.

BOX OFFICE PERFORMANCE: Although the third version of “A Star Is Born” received bad reviews in 1976, it’s the biggest box office earner with adjusted gross of more than 300 million (US domestic gross only). The soundtrack album was also a #1 record on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart.
