Episode 47: A Star is Born (1937, 1954, 1976, 2018)

This month, instead of two separate podcasts, we're exploring our theme through one episode that explores 4 films. Episode 47 tackles the resilient story of A Star is Born, comparing & contrasting the aspects of the story that makes it so resonant that it speaks to the culture 80 years on from its first version. The discussion touches on the four versions; the original, from 1937, directed by William Wellman and starring Janet Gaynor & Frederic March; the 1954 remake, directed by George Cukor and starring Judy Garland & James Mason; the 1976 reboot, which switched the story from Hollywood to the music industry, directed by Frank Pierson and starring Barbra Streisand & Kris Kristofferson.
