From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
A Star Is Born is the title of several successful movies:
- 1937, directed by Jack Conway (uncredited) and William A. Wellman
- 1954, directed by George Cukor
- 1976, directed by Frank Pierson
The 1954 version, starring Judy Garland and James Mason, is the best known, and In 2000 the United States Library of Congress deemed the film "culturally significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry. The 1976 version, starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, attempted to update the story by bringing it into the rock era, but is generally considered inferior.
