    Now that's a line with staying power. Before and since this 80-year-old film, too often Hollywood types have destroyed themselves before the public ended their careers. Good acting by Bennett and Sherman. I'd like to see Bennett and Hamilton's dinner scene played out in a future film. Would it be played as comedy, drama, or horror?

    Just saw this for the first time and was quite impressed for it's day and time. Constance Bennett is not only beautiful but a great actress. This is the movie they copied all the star is born movies after. I didn't know that until I saw it. Although she does not marry the drunk in this one it is very well written with a good cast. I thought the realization of what the drunk has done to his life and his inevitable end was very well done, instead of just swimming off into the ocean. It was very real for it's time as well.

    This one is best. Clever scenes. Less formulaic Cinderella nonsense. A searing look at lives and careers in Hollywood.

    The type of electric bell activated by the sound recording technician to signal the start and stop of sound recording in this 1932 movie is still in use today on Hollywood sound stages.

    The first version of the familiar "A Star Is Born" is quite good, but not up with the 1937 and 1954 versions. Well cast, good story and very entertaining.

  • Best Hollywood Film Ever.

    I saw 'What Price Hollywood' about 20 years ago and was blown away by it. This is one of the best films ever made about how an actress and director are both made into 'Hollywood Idols' and broken by the public when they fall from grace due to human frailities. Constance Bennett gave a wonderful perfomance as a naive girl wanting to make it to the top and was nearly destroyed by it. Lowell Sherman was terrific as the director who took her there and was crushed when the industry he helped create and then discarded by it. Do Not miss this film it will make you laugh, cry, and cheer. Also Louise Beavers has a funny role in it also as 'star-struck' maid with movie aspriations also.
