'A Star Is Born' (1937)
A Star Is Born has been remade again for 2018, but this one is the original. Janet Gaynor stars as Esther Blodgett, a North Dakota farm girl who sets out for Hollywood with stars in her eyes. She works as a waitress which is how she meets Norman Maine, the famous actor.

Norman lands her a job in his new film and, as they say, the rest is history. Esther becomes a huge star, they fall in love, get married, but Norman, suffering from alcohol troubles, commits suicide in the end. Esther never forgets him, and tells the crowd at her new premiere that her name is "Mrs. Norman Maine."
