What Price Hollywood?

George Cukor's 1932 film is often counted as a prototype of A Star Is Born with its story of a director (Lowell Sherman) who sinks into alcoholism as his discovery (Constance Bennett) rises through the Hollywood ranks. It's one of Cukor's most interesting early films, effortlessly shifting from satire to pathos. Sherman, a director in real life (he won an Academy Award for Katharine Hepburn with Morning Glory), gives a wrenchingly prophetic performance; he was to die two years later.
