The career of talented nightclub singer Esther Blodgett (Garland--The Wizard of Oz) is launched by movie star Norman Maine (James Mason), who also wins the young singer's heart. Esther becomes leading lady Vicki Lester and Mrs. Norman Maine, but as Maine's career flounders, he sinks into an abyss of alcoholism. Esther chooses to sacrifice her stardom to care for her husband, but he will not allow Esther to abandon her dreams for him. Features Judy Garland singing "The Man that Got Away." Nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Actress (Judy Garland), Best Actor (James Mason) and Best Song ("The Man that Got Away"). Based on the classic 1937 film.
