A Star Is Born

4

The James Mason/Judy Garland version

Judy Garland's star was waning by the time she made this classic, the making of which was plagued by costly delays on account of her drug-fuelled instability.

For the purposes of fiction, though, it’s James Mason whose career is on the skids, something marriage to Judy’s up-and-comer does little to reverse.

This (restored) version of A Star Is Born clocks in at almost three hours.

Be prepared for a long haul then, though it’s worth the effort to enjoy ‘Born In A Trunk’ and ‘The Man That Got Away’ as they were originally intended.
