    Lions, Towers & Shields August 26, 2020 Considering Judy Garland’s “A Star is Born”
    14 No One Told Me It's Three Hours Long

    This is the film that should have won Judy Garland the Oscar. It was both her greatest triumph, and a comeback film. It’s directed by George Cukor, the “woman’s director” of so many female-centered studio films. There’s a whole book about the making of “A Star is Born,” in fact. Also, this is the three-hour one.
