Editorial Reviews

This Academy Award-winning classic stars Janet Gaynor as farm girl Esther
Blodgett, who leaves her small-town life with dreams of becoming a successful
Hollywood movie star. She soon discovers that achieving stardom is more difficult
than she had ever dreamed. Unable to find work as an actress, Esther takes a
waitress job at a Hollywood party. While there, she is discovered by boozy leading
man Norman Maine (Fredric March), who promises to make her a star. He convinces
the head of a major movie studio (Adolphe Menjou) to give Esther a chance to prove
herself on screen, and the film is a smashing success. Esther and Norman marry,
but as her career skyrockets, his tragically fades away.

This is a cheap way to acquire this classic film that has apparently fallen into the public domain. There is a copyright warning at the beginning from Digiview Productions, but I have my doubts. I was surprised to see it was made in China, but it played just fine. It claims to be digitally remastered. It might have been once. This seems like standard VHS quality. It's wonderful to see 1937 Technicolor. It's not awesome sharp, but it's perfectly watchable and the sound is fine. There are no special features. It lets you click on "Preview," but it just starts playing the film. It came in a slim case with a different photo. The photo shown here is on the disc inside. The cover on the one I received is March and Gaynor embracing.

The film itself is a masterpiece. I cry at the last line every time. If you're only familiar with the Judy Garland / James Mason musical version, you have seen a totally different film. James Mason was one of the best actors ever on film, but Fredric March WAS Norman Maine. The Gaynor / March chemistry wasn't as amazing as that of Garland and Mason, but you will adore them both and get some good laughs. The color footage of the Chinese Theater in 1937 alone is worth the price of admission! A similar film that predated this was "What Price Hollywood?"
