Watched in honor of Judy's 100th birthday. ❤️ This is the only version I've seen of A Star is Born, but it's impossible for me to imagine anyone surpassing Judy's phenomenal performance. She pours her entire heart and soul into the role of Vicki. "The Man That Got Away" and "Born in a Trunk" were favorites for me, along with her incredible performance of "Someone At Last" for Norman in their living room.

And Flynn, well, he was simply born to play these parts really. It's no surprise he's magnificent here.
