Darum geht's

Ein Mädchen vom Lande macht Karriere in Hollywood. Es opfert dafür seine Persönlichkeit und die Ehe mit einem ehemals berühmten Schauspieler, der dem Alkohol verfällt und Selbstmord begeht.

Darum sehenswert

So classic that it’s been remade thrice, Wellman’s original is still the definitive Tinseltown melodrama, with Old Hollywood as the backdrop for grand romantic tragedy. The early Technicolor glows, and Dorothy Parker, Ben Hecht and Budd Schulberg all had a hand in writing the Oscar-nominated script!

Ein Stern geht auf Regie William A. Wellman

Kritiker-Rezensionen

if I like Wellman’s [version of A Star Is Born the] best of the three it’s because it’s the one that best impresses upon me a sense of excitement in the star’s ascent—it’s the one that dares exalt the victories of the Hollywood system at the same time that it laments its losses.

There are continual bursts of rough color surrounded by an almost enveloping darkness. It’s a darkness that surrounds not only the image but also the story and when it literally and figuratively envelops Fredric March’s Norman Maine, a Taxi-Driver-esque scenario emerges: is what happened real or is it a fantasy, wherein a woman actually gets to keep her successful career without being forced to choose between it and her less successful husband?

Wellman excelled in proletarian dramas: His tough-love approach to characterization, which made him an ideal storyteller for the Depression, typically denied the sympathy expected in love stories. The results, if not quite extraordinary, are certainly fascinating—the sort of great, instructive experiment that regularly emerged from studio assignations in this era.
