Barbra Streisand's fantastic singing voice shows to the best advantage her incredible talent. The movie falls short of greatness, but it compares more than favorably not only with the usual concert film but also with the current love stories on film. Full Review

It is ironic that the star system itself has killed A Star is Born, a film written to expose that system for just this kind of destructiveness. Full Review

This version vaunts its modernity by vulgarising everything in sight. Full Review

The trouble with rock 'n' roll in A Star Is Born is that there isn't any. The soundtrack is filled with homogenized harmonics passing for rock, but not a single song is good enough even to be counterfeit. Full Review

A Star Is Born presents Streisand in an appealing and sympathetic role, and Kristofferson provides the perfect balance. In his toughest dramatic assignment to date, he is exceptionally good. Full Review

A transistorized remake, louder than ever, but very small in terms of its being about anything whatsoever. Full Review

A Star is Born rarely stops seeming manufactured; it can't disguise its manipulations or the process of the storytelling. You see the tangled strings, not the puppets. Full Review

Product Description:

Two 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").

Description by Warner Home Video:

Star Is Born, A (1976)
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 screen's classic love stories (previously filmed in 1937 and 1954) and winner of five Golden GlobeO 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 song scores ever, topped by the Streisand/Williams Evergreen winning the Academy AwardO and Golden GlobeO Award as 1976's Best Original Song. Their teamwork resulted in a box-office triumph as well as "a considerable achievement" (Clive Hirschhorn, The Hollywood Musical).

Plot Synopsis:

In this third remake of the classic made originally in 1937, the story is updated for the 1970s and concerns a rock superstar and his downward spiral into booze and drugs.
