Book Description

There is no book about Hollywood as riveting as this documentary. - Allan Carr, Vanity Fair There is no question that the 1954 version of A STAR IS BORN holds a special place in the pantheon of classic movies. It was director George Cukors first foray into musicals, his first color film, and it was, without a doubt, Judy Garlands greatest screen performance.With incredible detail and color, Ronald Haver gives us the fascinating story of the making, marketing and restoration of this groundbreaking classic. Here is how producer Sid Luft orchestrated the deal for his wife, how Cukor was selected to direct, how James Mason was cast to co-star and how Moss Harts script was developed. Here are the myriad techincal problems, the clashes of personalities and the shocking emotional ups and downs of the films star. Here, finally, is the authors own mission to restore the film to its original length and glory in the 1980s.
