The fire of Barbra Streisand. The magnetism of Kris Kristofferson. The reckless world of big-time rock n roll. All three bring a new passion and timeliness to A Star is Born, one of the screens classic love stories (previously filmed in 1937 and 1954) and winner of five Golden Globe Awards, including Best Picture, Actress and Actor (Musical/Comedy). Paul Williams, Kenny Loggins, Leon Russell and others worked with Streisand on one of the most popular songs scores ever, topped by the Streisand/Williams Evergreen winning the Academy Award and golden Globe Award as 1976s Best Original Song. Their teamwork resulted in a box-office triumph as well as a considerable achievement (Clive Hirschhorn, The Hollywood Musical).

Good acting and Streisand and Kristofferson have great chemistry together, so their love story was believable. Yes it's sad but the two songs performed by Streisand at the end are very powerful.
The emotional toing and froing captures you immediately and you are drawn into their relationship right through to the end of the movie, laughing and crying with them both every step of the way. I broke the video tape - I've played it so much, and now I long for it to come out on DVD. Jan 1, 2010 seems an eternity to wait for this masterpiece to be released.
5 amazing stars for this film, an absolutely MUST SEE.
My only quibble is with the technical details on the packaging, which are self-contradictory and confusing. It says that it is a 16:9 transfer, which it is; it says the film is in it's original aspect ratio, which is nearly true. Actually the original aspect ratio is 1.85:1 and this DVD is 1.78:1, so a small bit of the image has been cropped from the sides. But the packaging also says "1.33:1 - regular", which is just plain wrong. Quite how this bit of misinformation got past Warner's quality inspectors we'll probably never know.
