WHAT PRICE HOLLYWOOD?
1932, Warner Bros., 87 min, USA, Dir: George Cukor

Brown Derby waitress and aspiring actress Constance Bennett attracts the attention of alcoholic director Lowell Sherman – her career soars while his falters, in this early version of the story that would be more famously adapted in 1937 and 1954 as A STAR IS BORN. “Bennett gives one of those complete, exquisitely nuanced performances that have made Cukor’s direction so justly celebrated.” – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times.
