Original Warner Brothers First Video Release Poster (21x28). Richard Amsel Art. Folded. Near Mint Condition.

Original Warner Brothers First Video Release Poster (21x28) for the George Cukor romantic musical, A STAR IS BORN (1954) starring Judy Garland and James Mason. This was a remake of the original 1937 version of the film starring Janet Gaynor and Frederic March. But this later version will be remembered as Judy Garland's last leading role in a Hollywood film and is marked by a pervasive sense of melancholy. Garland plays Esther Blodgett, an obscure but successful band singer who is transformed into the movie star Vicki Lester thanks to an alcoholic, tormented "has-been" named Norman Maine (Mason). Garland makes the most of the masterful songs of Harold Arlen and Ira Gershwin, the most significant being her wonderful rendition of "The Man That Got Away." The film was nominated for six Academy Awards-- including Best Actor for Mason, Best Actress for Garland, Best Original Song to Arlen and Gershwin, and Best Musical Score to Ray Heindorf. This first Warner Brothers video release poster with art by Richard Amsel is folded and in near mint condition.
