We Recycle Movies Posted by Anne Marie on Jan 17, 2014

I’d like to start 2014 with a throwback. All the way back in 2012, when I started (or rather restarted) We Recycle Movies, the blog was reborn with a trio of reviews of the various versions of A Star Is Born (1937, 1954, and 1976, respectively).

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Aug 25, 2013

Reviews of unabashed praise are rare for me, and hard to write because there’s only so many permutations of the phrase “It’s freaking awesome!”  A Star Is Born has been done countless times (and was remade again in 1976), both literally and peripherally.  I’ve seen snip read more

A Classic Tale of Hollywood: A Star is Born

Sunset Blvd Posted by Rachel T on Jul 31, 2013

A Star is Born. For most readers, it will probably be Judy Garland’s sensational musical take on this cautionary tale of Hollywood that is most familiar.
