A Star Is Born (1976)

A/V Quality 10/10


Talented rock star John Norman Howard has seen his career begin to decline. Too many years of concerts and managers and life on the road have made him cynical and the monotony has taken its toll. Then he meets the innocent, pure and very talented singer Esther Hoffman. As one of his songs in the movie says "I'm gonna take you girl, I'm gonna show you how." And he does. He shows Esther the way to stardom while forsaking his own career. As they fall in love, her success only makes his decline even more apparent.

A Star Is Born is a 1976 American musical drama film telling the story of a young woman, played by Barbra Streisand, an easy listening folkie type ingenue who enters the music business, and meets and falls in love with an established male rock'n'roll star, played by Kris Kristofferson, only to find her career ascending while his goes into decline. It is a remake of two earlier versions – the 1937 version was a drama starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, and the 1954 version was a musical starring Judy Garland and James Mason. It will be remade for a fourth time in 2018 starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
