We now have no fewer than four big screen versions of A Star Is Born.
There's the 1937 original, the Judy Garland/James Mason remake, the Barbra Streisand/Kris Kristofferson remake... and now's there's the Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper remake, which is directed by Cooper, and which might just take the fall movie season by storm.
This hour: a Noseish (but not quite actually The Nose) look at the phenomenon of A Star Is Born.
