5.0 out of 5 stars
A Star Is Born, 2 Sep 2001
Made during WWII, this epic of faith and courage introduced Jennifer Jones to the world and an Oscar at the age of 24. It's an inspired performance, wide-eyed innocence at its best. All the supporting cast are great: Anne Revere as Bernadette's mother and Gladys Cooper as the jealous nun are stand outs.
This is a great Sunday afternoon movie. Just keep the tissues close by.
