    BENNIE QUINCY SHAFT SAYS ... OUTSTANDING!

    WOW! This is one great movie. We originally had the 1983 restoration on VHS-HIFI, and, while the sound was excellent, the picture left much to be desired on a 27 inch screen. Let's fast forward to this BD release, based on a further, smaller restoration in 1999. The BD picture is, of course, much, much better, with a sharp, crisp image that has NOT been DNRed. Thus, it still has a film "look," complete with the grain that film should have. On a 50 inch HDTV, the wide screen image is spectacular. The sound is even better than it was on that old tape, very clear, with the songs, especially, just blowing the viewer away.

    Warner Brothers should be commended for this restoration and for this BD. VERY WELL DONE!

    As for the film itself, I can add virtually nothing more to the praise that I've read here. The performance of Judy Garland was stunning. Her, "The Man That Got Away," sequence has to be seen to be believed. How Grace Kelly beat out Judy Garland for the 1954 Best Actress Oscar is beyond me. I've seen, "High Noon," and my vote goes to Judy Garland.

    Buy this BD.

      Even if you've seen it a hundred times, this blu-ray version is breathtaking. Coloring is luminous and the audio fantastic. Plus all the extras. Judy gives it her all...and it shows. A true classic remastered for us all to enjoy over and over again!

          Comments about Star is Born, A (BD) Blu-ray:

          Several years ago, TCM aired this great film with an audio commentary by Ronald Haver, who was responsible for locating over twenty minutes of lost footage after the film was cut shortly after its 1954 release.
          Why can't Warner Bros sell "A Star is Born" with this commentary track?

              One of the all-time greats sparkles as never before in its blu-ray restoration. Was lucky to see this on the big screen at Grauman's Chinese Theatre during the TCM Classic Film Festival, and watching the new release on my lcd tv did not prove disappointing, to say the least! Thanks to Warner's for spending the time and money to beautifully restore this compelling classic. All movie fans--and especially Judy Garland fans--will thank you.
