One Hour Intro/ A Star is Born

8th December 19
3:30pm — 5:00pm

There are four films called A Star Is Born, but several other films telling the same story (including Bollywood and porn versions) as well as a radio play and, first, a novel. This richly illustrated talk will look across all the versions. What differences are there between them? What do they all think it means to say a star is ‘born’? What effect does it have when the star in question is a singer and the story becomes a musical? And what makes the Judy Garland – James Mason – George Cukor version special?
