Not Necessarily The Nose: 'A Star Is Born' (Again)

Warner Bros. Ent.
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in Cooper's 'A Star Is Born' (2018).

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.

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:
