Your Critically Acclaimed | A Star is Born (1954)

Our Patrons have the power to sponsor an episode of CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED of their choice, and we're calling it YOUR CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED!

In this episode, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold have been asked to review A STAR IS BORN, the first (and possibly the second) remake of a classic Hollywood tale about a young rising star who falls in love with an aging mentor, whose alcoholism destroys his career just as her own is taking off.

The 1954 version was directed by George Cukor and stars Judy Garland and James Mason, and it's considered a Hollywood classic, but is it really better than the celebrated Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga version? 

Let's find out!
