Two of the finest examples of drama from Hollywood's fledgling golden age, William Wellman's 'A Star Is Born' (1937) and George Stevens' 'Penny Serenade' (1941), are showcased in this double feature from Catcom. Each earns 4 1/2 stars, boasting superb performances by lead and supporting cast to complement truly absorbing storytelling by director and screenwriters, respectively. The transfer of 'Star'-- an early color production which appears faded and somewhat out of focus-- is as good as any I've seen in the public domain (3 stars), while picture and audio clarity on 'Penny'-- from an obviously more blighted source-- is slightly below average (2-plus stars). The quality of the prints, unrestored as they are, isn't a deal-breaker, however, as it affords very watchable versions of two excellent films in one economical package. 4-minus stars overall.
