A Star is Born (1954) starring Judy Garland, James Mason

As a band singer guided to heights of show-business success by an alcoholic ex-matinee idol, Judy Garland performs one superb song after another (most by Harold Arlen and Ira Gershwin) in a production – also starring James Mason and directed by George Cukor – that exhilarates with its craft and style even as it moves toward a heartbreaking finale. Shortened after its 1954 premiere and reconstructed to near its original length in 1983, A Star Is Born endures as one of Hollywood’s supreme triumphs.

Forever Darling (1956) starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, James Mason

Forever, Darling a very sweet movie, and very funny as well.  I enjoyed it, and hope that you do as well.Frankly, Forever Darling is one of my favorite Lucille Ball movies.  The basic premise is that biologist Lorenzo Xavier Vega (played by Desi Arnaz) has grown apart from his wife Susan (played by Lucille Ball).  He has thrown himself into his work. She has thrown herself into the social scene.  Nobody says the words “thinking of divorce” — but then, nobody really needs to, either.  By this point it should be obvious that this is not an offshoot of I Love Lucy. Although there are, indeed some similarities later on.  But first, this marriage needs God’s help to avoid divorce.  And He provides it, in the form of an angel that only Lucille Ball can see, played by James Mason.
