From maverick filmmaker William A. Wellman (The public enemy, Nothing sacred) comes the original, timeless tale of Hollywood fantasy and heartbreak: A star is born. Esther Blodgett (Janet Gaynor) comes to Hollywood with dreams of stardom only to have them shattered by a ruthless, cold-hearted town without pity, where the chances of finding fame are one in a hundred thousand. Enter falling (and falling down drunk) movie star Norman Maine (Fredric March), whom Esther meets at a Hollywood party. Maine gets Esther a screen test and she's an instant success, and the publicity machine sets about recreating the small-town girl.

Despite deafening noise and constant distraction, directors talked their cast through every move and emotion, and from this confusion came great films
