    Synopsis

    Small-town girl Esther Blodgett dreams of screen stardom, despite the chorus of naysayers in her family. Backed only by grandmother Lettie (May Robson), who applauds her "pioneer spirit," Esther moves to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams. She can't catch a break with central casting, but a chance encounter with matinee idol Norman Maine (Fredric March) while waitressing at a fancy industry party leads to a bit part, then a big break and soon romance and marriage with Maine. Rechristened "Vicky Lester," Esther becomes America's sweetheart, even as her husband and mentor descends into alcoholic ruin.
