The DVD arrived intact within days of my initial order. You can't beat Overstock's prices on these DVDs. As far as the actual movie is concerned, if you're a Barbara Streisand fan you'll love the movie. I plan to purchase other DVDs from Overstock by this artist to replace all the VHS movies I have. I recommend Overstock highly!

Hello Everyone! I was very satisfied with my order from Overstock.com! This was my first order and all went so well that I would not hesitate to order again. The order was simple to post online. I bought "A Star Is Born" dvd with Barbra Streisand that you could not just find anywhere and it was a lot less at Overstock.com. I also purchased a case for my IPOD touch that will protect it. I wasn't expecting to find this but the price was so good I had to check it out and see if it would fit. It did, just like they said it would. Another case would have been 2 or 3 times the amount.. I do a lot of online ordering and you can't beat the shipping! I wish a lot more companies would take note! Thank you Overstock.com!!!!!!
Before our incessant, web-generated obsession with celebrities and people famous for just being famous, there was real fame. This movie chronicles the life of a 70's rock star and his inability to deal with that burden...watching the movie again after probably 25 years, I realized how inured our society has become to seeing behind the scenes of "celebrity" life. But back then, this was a big deal. And the trappings of fame were actually fairly simple...a nice car, a swimming pool, drugs, a helicopter ride...The story itself is very touching and actually fairly timeless. Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand, both in almost every scene, hold their own throughout . The movie unwinds slowly, like films in that era tend to do, and it's fun to watch. And the music is fabulous, still, to this day. Not to mention those authentically cool 70's clothes they wear.A nice film to have in a collection.
