'There is no question that the 1954 version of A STAR IS BORN holds a special place in the pantheon of classic movies. It was director George Cukor's first foray into musicals, his first color film, and it was, without a doubt, Judy Garland's greatest screen performance. With incredible detail and color, Ronald Haver gives us the fascinating story of the making, marketing and restoration of this groundbreaking classic. Here is how producer Sid Luft orchestrated the deal for his wife, how Cukor was selected to direct, how James Mason was cast to co-star and how Moss Hart's script was developed. Here are the myriad techincal problems, the clashes of personalities and the shocking emotional ups and downs of the film's star. Here, finally, is the author's own mission to restore the film to its original length and glory in the 1980s.'--from the publisher. [code J]

Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1993 Simon & Schuster. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Light wear. 414pp, Index, Filmography, Bibliography, B/W photos. Language: English. 'During Hollywood's golden age, film director Ernst Lubitsch was known for the sophistication, understated wit, and sexual suggestiveness of his movies--in short, for the Lubitsch touch. Starting out in pre-World War I Berlin as an actor in Max Reinhardt's company, Lubitsch became one of Europe's leading film directors and was the first major German director to emigrate (in 1922) to the U.S. Moving smoothly into the sound era, he virtually invented the movie musical in The Love Parade (1929) and in the mid-1930s was made production head at Paramount--thus the only director ever to run a Hollywood studio. ... Lubitsch's later films, including Ninotchka and Heaven Can Wait, were among his best. The director lacked the savoir faire of his films' characters. His two marriages both ended unhappily, and his other romantic liaisons fared little better. His skills behind the camera and personal charm, however, inspired the loyalty and affection of actors, screenwriters, and other coworkers, many of whom shared their reminiscences with Eyman, whose work is consequently heavy with anecdotes but entertaining and informative.'--Gordon Flagg, Booklist.
