George Christy Talks About Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, A Star Is Born, Kris Kristofferson and more!
Like hardy perennials that bloom from time to time, there are appealing movies that are revived again and again. Such as this week’s release of A Star Is Born, with Lady Gaga as a drag bar singer and Bradley Cooper, who directed, as a country/western performer. Accolades surround the movie, which Los Angeles Times’ critic Justin Chang describes as “magical.”
The first movie, with Janet Gaynor and Frederic March, continues to be popular with cineastes. Followed by the Judy Garland version, which became a musical featuring Judy’s memorable The Man Who Got Away. The next version with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson featured Barbra’s Evergreen. And in this latest version Lady Gaga sings Edith Piaf’s signature song La Vie En Rose, which remains a classic in the world of cabaret.
Don’t be be surprised if the next revival features one of the Kardashians.
