A Star is Born

You know, there’s nothing explicitly wrong with this version of A Star is Born, it’s just missing that extra spark that makes a very good movie a great one. This first version, from 1937, tells the melodramatic love story involving a rising star and a fading one.

William Wellman's acclaimed, award-winning story of Hollywood triumph and disappointment stars Fredric March as movie star Norman Maine. Maine discovers Esther Blodgett (Janet Gaynor) and gets her a screen test, igniting her career. But as Esther's star grows brighter, Norman's star diminishes, sending him into a despair from which he may not recover.

" Notes: To be honest, I thought it was rather difficult to judge this movie. Indeed, by then, it was already the 3d version of this story that I saw, after the 1957 version and the 2018 version (I still have to watch the 1976 version at some point but it seems to be the weakest of the bunch though). However, in this case, it seems rather unfair since this movie was actually the very first one. Anyway, even though it is undoubtedly a popular story, I’m still not sure about it though. Indeed, e"
