A Star is Born (1937) Rated NR

A young woman comes to Hollywood and dreams of stardom but only achieves the fame with an alcoholic, former leading man whose stardom is behind him. Starring Janet Gaynor, Fredric March, and Menjou.

The first version of A Star is Born is one of Hollywood’s most remade films. This one has an interesting story combined with great chemistry between Gaynor and March. This film does an excellent job of focusing on the rise of her career with the fall of his. March is brilliant as the star whose fame is dwindling; his emotions and sobriety follow suit as his life goes from the top to the bottom. This film is a wonder that makes you see why Hollywood has a love affair with this story. It’s worth a watch.
