Hollywood’s obsession with adaptations has never failed to gain a strong reaction from the public (whether that be excitement or outrage). While most versions flop, some seem to get more popular with time, as is the case with the heartbreaking musical story told in A Star is Born.

Since its original release in 1937 (starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March), A Star is Born has been remade a total of three times: in 1954 (starring Judy Garland and James Mason), in 1976 (starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson), and in 2018 (starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper).

In each film, the general premise, originally created from a story by William A. Wellman, Robert Carson, Dorothy Parker, and Alan Campbell, follows a young woman with dreams of fame, who ends up achieving them with the help of an alcoholic star whose glory days are behind him. And with each film, it seems the accolades grow and the heart of the story continues to be just as relatable.

The latest adaptation has proved the most successful to date, earning Gaga an Academy Award, Grammy Award, BAFTA Award, and a Golden Globe Award, all in the same year (the first woman to do so). And the film’s original single “Shallow” is now recognized as one of the best-selling singles of all time.
