The film that got away...

As ob­sessed with the A Star is Born re­make with Gaga as we are? Take a look back at the his­tory of the film with this new book from Judy Gar­land’s daugh­ter Lorna Luft. From talk of life on set in the orig­i­nal re­make film back in 1954 to her mother’s fight to save her ca­reer, Lorna joins film his­to­rian Jef­frey Vance to give a candid ac­count of the craft­ing, loss and restora­tion of a movie clas­sic. The book also fea­tures im­ages from through­out Judy’s sadly short, but won­der­ful (and colour­ful), life.

A Star is Born: Judy Gar­land and the Film that Got Away is out now, priced £20

Get ready for your close up.

The best smart­phone cam­era on the market just got even bet­ter. Say hello to the new Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, packed full of new fea­tures and un­lim­ited stor­age on Google Photos. As the days get shorter, your time to take the per­fect out­side selfie doesn’t have to suf­fer with the de­vice’s out­stand­ing im­age qual­ity in any light. The cam­era is so good, it was used to shoot cover sto­ries for the lat­est is­sues of GQ and W Mag­a­zine. What’s more, with a selfie mode us­ing a 184% wide lens no­body needs to be cut out of the pic­ture around the Christ­mas din­ner ta­ble this year.

We’ve featured plenty of cool wireless speak­ers on the pages of Gay Times over the years, but very few man­age to reach this level of iconic. Bang & Olufsen have teamed up with none other than cult-clas­sic di­rec­tor, screen­writer, artist, and mu­si­cian David Lynch for a spe­cial edi­tion speaker col­lec­tion, tak­ing se­lected de­tails from the War Be­tween the Shapes series, and the Paris Suite lith­o­graphs. These in­cred­i­ble de­signs now adorn the Beo­play M5 and Beo­play P2 speak­ers, giv­ing you home en­ter­tain­ment that looks as good as it sounds.

Avail­able from se­lected Bang & Olufsen stores, priced £175 for the P2 and £700 for the M5
