A Star is Born: An Analysis of the Remakes 

We’ve completed a comprehensive analysis of the scripts from all four A Star Is Born versions in order to closely examine which elements of a movie change when it is remade and which withstand the test of time (hint: alcohol).

By implementing the power of AI to compare thousands of features of these scripts, studios have the data they need to make more informed decisions about a remake’s potential before an investment is made.

The four A Star Is Born scripts analyzed are:

- 1937 version starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March

- 1954 version starring Judy Garland and James Mason

- 1976 version starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson

- 2018 version starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper
