Starring Janet Gaynor, Fredric March

Janet Gaynor plays Esther Blodgett, a movie-struck country girl convinced that Hollywood will bring her fame and fortune. But her public life is deeply affected when Norman Maine, a fading movie-idol, falls in love with her. This early version of the film, twice remade as a musical, is a vivid and often harsh portrait of tinsel town in the 30s.

Keelhauled
Written and narrated by Ian Wooldridge
The current America's Cup battle in the heaving waters off Perth, Western Australia, is the most costly single event in sporting history. America's obsession to get it back, Australia's determination to cling on to it, and the efforts of five other nations, including Great
Britain, to sink them both - all adds up to a 200 million dollar challenge. And that's Just the cost of the boats, their sails and their crews. It is costing a further 100 million to stage the event. Why such passion about a boat race? In the first of three films that take an in-depth look at the America's Cup phenomenon, Ian Wooldridge returns to Newport, Rhode Island, and the New York Yacht Club to discover the stunning effect of that historic night in September 1983, when Australia prised the trophy out of America's keeping after 132 years.

Motivating people to improve their work and working life is a full-time job. Suggestion schemes, with financial rewards for good ideas, are highly thought of, but some firms believe that quality circles, which don't usually pay, are a better solution.
To what extent does money control the system?
Should workers be rewarded for good ideas or should it be part of the job?
