The third remake of the 1932 drama What Price Hollywood?, this adaptation of A Star Is Born moved the story into the mid-1970s and changed the milieu from the movie business to pop music. John Norman Howard (Kris Kristofferson) is a rock star whose career has peaked; he is numbed by booze and cocaine, his music has lost its edge, and his performances have become painfully haphazard. One night, after a concert, he stumbles into a club where he sees a singing group fronted by Esther Hoffman (Barbra Streisand). John likes what he hears and loves what he sees; he tries picking her up, but soon realizes if he wants to see her, hell have to ask her out on an actual date. He does, and before long the two become involved, although Esther has trouble with Johns rock star lifestyle. One night, a typically burned-out John lets Esther sing a few songs at one of his shows; before long shes the talk of the record business. While Esthers star begins to rise, Johns continues to sink, and while she desperately tries get John to clean up and focus on his music, it may be too late to save him. The song Evergreen earned this film an Academy Award for Best Song; the credits contain the amusing notice, Ms. Streisands Clothes from … Her Closet. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
