The beautifully shot A STAR IS BORN recounts a tragic Hollywood tale of fame and misfortune. As young Esther Blodgett (Janet Gaynor) rises to stardom, her husband, former leading man Norman Maine (Fredric March), is in the midst of a heartbreakingly rapid decline. Gaynor is both genuine and funny as the small-town girl who loses her one great love while she pursues another, and March is perfect as the passť alcoholic has-been. The film received six Academy Award nominations and won a special award for its color cinematography.

"This Digiview Productions release of the superb Gaynor-March "A Star Is Born" has very nice picture/colour and sound reproduction - much better quality, on each count, than I had previously seen/heard on a budget DVD of this movie. Brightness/contrast in a few places briefly (just a matter of seconds, each time) intensifies a bit. Still, I am very satisfied with this DVD and recommend it."
