Two Hollywood classics from 1937, both directed by William Wellman and both starring Frederic March. They are also early examples of color films. "A Star is Born" is the first of many versions of the now familiar story and it's not as good as the Judy Garland one. "Nothing Sacred" is a frothy, brisk screwball comedy with the lovely, funny Carole Lombard.
