Talented rock star John Norman Howard has seen his career begin to decline. Too many years of concerts and managers and life on the road have made him cynical and the monotony has taken its toll. Then he meets the innocent, pure and very talented singer Esther Hoffman. As one of his songs in the movie says "I'm gonna take you girl, I'm gonna show you how." And he does. He shows Esther the way to stardom while forsaking his own career. As they fall in love, her success only makes his decline even more apparent.Written by

The very last line of the song Streisand sings during the big climax performance, "Are you watching me now," is sung with the microphone away from her mouth, revealing it to be lip-synced. Streisand does however mouth the word "now" even though the microphone is still not anywhere near her mouth. See more »
"A Star Is Born" (1976) uses the same storyline of the previous versions, i.e., the story of the rise of a new star and the fall of the old one, who is her beloved alcoholic and drug addicted man that discovered and promoted her career. However, this 1976 version changes the story and both Esther Hoffman and John Norman Howard are singers. There are dated scenes in 2019 but it is still a great movie with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson showing excellent chemistry. The music score is magnificent for the fans of Barbra Streisand. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Nasce uma Estrela" ("A Star Is Born")
