A Star Is Born is a 1976 American musical romantic drama film about a young singer (Barbra Streisand) who meets and falls in love with an established rock and roll star (Kris Kristofferson), only to find her career ascending while his goes into decline.

Both take on Watch Closely Now with gusto, their contrasting approaches equally suiting the commanding rave-up’s charms. A Star Is Born Barbra Streisand.
