Dir: George Cukor | USA| 1954 | 154 MINS | CERT: G

A remake of the 1937 classic, this time as a musical about a Hollywood couple going through bad times. Would-be singer Esther Blodgett (Judy Garland) finds herself taken under the wing of fading star Norman Maine (James Mason) when she saves him from making a drunken fool of himself on stage. Changing her name to Vicki Lester, Esther becomes a star, and is soon married to Norman. However, as Vicki's star rises, so Norman's falls. Harold Arlen/Ira Gershwin songs include 'The Man That Got Away'.

Starring Judy Garland, James Mason, Jack Carson, Charles Bickford and Tommy Noonan.

Combines heartbreaking tragedy, out-of-this-world musical entertainment and rib-splitting comedy” – The Hollywood Reporter
