June,2022 is the hundredth anniversary of Judy Garland’s birth.
Judy’s career is a wealth of wonderful performances, in musicals, comedies, dramas. She could do it all.
And of course she sang so many memorable songs. My favourites include “The Man That Got Away”, “I’m Always Chasing Rainbows”, “Better Luck Next Time”, “Gotta Have Me Go With You”.
And here’s Judy in action.

It’s 1937, I’LL TAKE ROMANCE with Grace Moore and Melvyn Douglas is on screen. And Judy,aged 15, is appearing in person. Would love to know what she did on stage back then.

Further to comments from Greg and Bob, I found this photo of Judy with Edith Piaf and Ginger Rogers . Judy, Ginger plus Sonia Henie and Faye Emerson were attending Piaf’s opening at the Versailles night club in New York in Sept. 1950.
Also in attendance that night were Robert Montgomery,Yvonne de Carlo, Dan Dailey.
