5.0 out of 5 stars
Excellent book. A must for any Judy fan., 17 Feb 2013
I own several hard cover books about Judy written by John Fricke, and I must say this is probably one of my favourites. Received the book yesterday and spent a good 3 hours perusing through the pages, looking at the fantastic photos included and reading about my favourite Garland films (and after 3 hours I'm not even halfway through yet!).
I really like how each of her films is broken down with a synopsis, reviews written at the time of the films release, notes about said film and (probably my favourite of all) the quotes from the actors/directors/producers who worked on each film. I absolutely love the amount of anecdotes included, and several of them had me tearing up reading the lovely words Judy's friends and fellow actors had to say.
I recommend this book to any Judy Garland fan, even if you have every other photo book ever published, I still think this deserves a place on every Judy fans bookshelf. I'd not seen a lot of the photos featured and a few times I caught myself with a silly little grin across my face when browsing the pages.
A must for any Judy fan. Thank you John Fricke for yet another wonderful book dedicated to the memory of this very talented lady.
