Star Is Born (1976)
|Rock star john howards has seen his career decline. Too many years on the road have made him cynical. He meets the innocent and very talented singer esther hoffman and they fall in love. Her rise makes his fall even more apparent. A love story for the time.|
Editor's NoteTwo rock superstars play out their lives against the high pressure background of big-time rock and roll. Streisand's singing adds luster to a familiar script. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Song Score. Academy Awards: Best Song ("Evergreen").

Customer Reviews of Star Is Born
I have always been a fan of Barbra and Kris. I enjoy watching musical movies. In this movie I try my best to keep up with Barbra in Evergreen and I never succeed. I just loved every song in this movie. There was one thing that I did not like. At the end of the movie Kris dies. I had a better ending in mind. But it was still a dramatic movie about love, life, and tragedy. Excellent.
She wanted the whole thing12/18/2006
My wife knows that I'm a collector of movies and I asked her what film did she enjoy that I didn't have in my collection. She mentioned "A Star is Born" with Kristofferson and Streisand. I had known of two other versions of the same story but I knew I had to get this one and thanks to Buy.com I was able to pre-order and surprisingly have the selection arrive before Christmas. I'm looking forward to a quiet evening and watching this classic (with all the music) with my wife. Thank you Buy.com
As good as the first time12/15/2006
I saw this movie upon its release in 1976. I loved it then, and love it still. I have been searching for this movie to purchase on DVD for such a long time. I finally found it on buy.com....thanks to you I finally have this movie. Kris Kristofferson is so wonderful in this movie that you cannot help but feel so badly for him and to cheer him on. Barbra Streisand’s vocals are also excellent. I once saw an interview with him and he stated he changed his life around after filming Star is Born and this movie depicted his real life. One of the best and hottest love stories you'll want to ever see.
