A Star is Born (1937) – Much more straightforward and accessible than the 1954 remake, and a whole hell of a lot shorter. That’s not to say the remake wasn’t a good movie, just very, very different… and long.
I actually watched this yesterday, but had to take a break, finish it at 11:30 and then go immediately to bed. The delay was because I had to go out and meet Debbie Fucking Reynolds. She said “tits” a lot.
