MUSICAL FAVORITES 2017
A STAR IS BORN
A STAR IS BORN
1954, Warner Bros., 170 min, USA, Dir: George Cukor

Alcoholic failing star Norman Maine (James Mason) discovers and marries rising matinee idol songbird Esther Blodgett (Judy Garland) in director George Cukor’s emotionally incandescent remake of William Wellman’s 1937 version. Fueled by Garland’s terrifying vulnerability, Cukor’s flawless direction, a superb script by Moss Hart and production design by Gene Allen (MY FAIR LADY) that brilliantly evokes Hollywood wealth and power, A STAR IS BORN is an amazing synthesis of on-screen drama, music and behind-the-scenes myth.
