The story we can’t get enough of (cleaned up and sans addiction for The Artist) is back again with a new “digibook” Blu-Ray release of the Kristofferson/Streisand effort A Star is Born. Not the story’s best telling, even among films that share the name, this one nevertheless has its place in cinematic history for Streisand’s vocals alone.

The film centers around the music scene in this go, and Kristofferson is the aging rock star who finds himself at a point where he has more ego than tangible excuses to boost it, when he stumbles upon Streisand performing in a lounge act with little hope of going anywhere.

The two fall for each other, and we basically get the exact game we figure we will. He pushes her into the limelight, though unable to stay there himself, and she hopes to save him from his vices, etc. »
