Since the original three-strip elements have been preserved over at UCLA, why, then, is their not a really good DVD of the original 1937 version of "A Star is Born," with Janet Gaynor and Frederic March? The Image Entertainment DVD claims to be restored from the original elements. BAH! Never having seen the picture, I picked it up. I couldn't finish it. It looked like a 16mm Cinecolor print that had been run over by a dump truck. (I know the film was reissued in the two-strip Cinecolor process) Frames seemed to be missing. There was a good movie underneath that horrible transfer. Sadly the film is in the public domain, damaging the incentive for anyone to release a truly good version of the 1937 version. Warner Home Video did the Judy Garland version, perhaps they could do the original?
