Book Description

8 Sep 2011
Through her incomparable work on screen, stage, record, radio, and television, Judy Garland earned renown as "The World's Greatest Entertainer." It was as a motion picture star though, that she first rose to international fame. From her feature film debut in 1936 through the aptly titled I Could Go on Singing in 1963, she lit up the screen with a magic uniquely hers-and dazzled world-wide audiences of all ages. Judy Garland starred in two dozen of the all-time classic movie musicals, among them A Star is Born, Meet Me in St. Louis, Babes in Arms, Easter Parade, For Me and My Gal, and The Harvey Girls. Her dramatic turns in Judgment at Nuremberg, The Clock, and A Child is Waiting won added acclaim. And perhaps most unforgettably, she starred as Dorothy Gale in the best-loved motion picture of all time: The Wizard of Oz. Judy: A Legendary Film Career tells the story of Garland's movie work in unprecedented detail. Hundreds of never-before-published photos, newly-assembled contemporary reviews, insight from her costars and coworkers, and production histories are provided for each film in which she appeared. Highlighting and complimenting the feature films is a definitive biography; an examination of Judy's short subjects; details of the movies she did not complete; and an enthralling compendium of film projects for which she was considered or rumored. The text is illustrated by more than five hundred photos, encompassing poster art; costume tests; behind-the-scenes candids; onstage and backstage glimpses of her theatrical successes; and personal snapshots. Judy is the exhaustively researched work of historian John Fricke. He celebrates as never before the heart, humor, and incandescent motion picture achievement of the one-and-only Judy Garland.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rainbow of Judy 16 Sep 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What a wonderful book - the photographs and descriptions of Judy's movie history are lovely. This book is a real treasure, looking at her tv, concerts and stage appearances as well. I was so blown away by it that I ordered a second copy for my friend Tara's birthday in December, she will love it. I beg all of those who love Judy, to buy this book. I have read the many books written about Judy, but this is the one the fans will find the most interesting.
Toto-ally Over the Rainbow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 3 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my sister for her 77th birthday. She was so thrilled with it!
Because it is full of pictures of Judy`s life and film career and contains easy to read information, I would recommend it as good gift for anyone, but particularly for those who are from Judy`s generation.
It certainly brings back memories!
