| 2018 is a Good Movie. 1954 Judy Garland Was A Great Movie
We watched the 1954 version of A Star is Born after seeing the 2018 Bradley/Gaga version. Both are good. Judy Garland and James Masson were great. Especially the music score. Not sure what happened on this one.

Ally: Really. Thank you.


When Ally steps to the microphone onstage at the tribute performance, she is lit in a spotlight shining down from her left. In the closeups of her face, however, the shadows of her chin and the microphone are on her left, indicating the lights are now shining down from the right.
