Synopsis

One of the greatest of all musicals, Esther Blodgett is a young dancer, singer and actress hoping to hit the big time. She's befriended by Norman Maine, a once successful actor whose career is on the skids due to his alcoholism. The pair fall in love, but as Esther (who renames herself Vicki Lester) continues to climb the showbiz ladder, Norman falls further behind. This is a powerful, human story about success and failure, and the heartlessness of the Hollywood system.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
