    I know what you're saying. I appreciate Judy Garland, I think she was a wonderful singer and actress, but I just don't care for musicals and I just couldn't get into the type of stuff that she sings or acts in.
    I'm 17 by the way, and I was obsessed with "The Wizard Of Oz" as a kid, but I just don't get the appeal now. I have to say, I prefer Return To Oz with Fairuza Balk.

    Tomorrow, our beloved Judy would have been 87 years young. This coming June 22nd, she will have been gone 40 years. With that, we are heading over to Ferncliff to pay our respects (I'll take pics!).

    Happy Birthday, Judy. We love you.

    Like Elvis, I'm kinda partial to the older version; she was STILL a beautiful woman:

    No matter what she went through, no matter what demons came her way, she was and still remains one of the most beautiful, fascinating women ever to grace the screen. Her voice still makes me cry.

    Thank god most of those pathetic queens that praise her are either gone or amost gone what a pathetic bitch she was if I had been an acquiantance of hers Id punched her in her dirty whore cunt every time she emitted that awfully inflected whine of hers that grates all sensible nerves. Liza Minelli is not nearly as bad but it wouldve been no great loss if she ended up as a bloody gelatinous mass af stem cells in some Beverly Hills back alley rather than an amusing sidenote of Judys dirty whore cunt.

    She always had this sense of being very fragile, at least to me. I can't help but think that on the inside, she was still a little girl trying very hard to please everyone, despite the fact that she was a tremendously talented entertainer.

    I just read that Anne Hathaway will be portraying her in the new biopic about Judy. Not quite sure how I feel about that....

    Jack-O-Lantern I was like you, on the fence and not wanting a biopic screwed up but ....I saw Anne Hathaway on the View and they showed a clip of her singing and I was blown away and then I started looking at her bone structure and I think it could really work. I certainly think she is approaching it from a place of respect.

    I'm not happy about Anne Hathaway taking the roll on either, Jack. She probably doesn't even know who she was. I love Anne and she was great in Brokeback Mountain and Devil Wears Prada, but Judy? Tammy Blanchard and Judy Davis did a smashing job in "Me and My Shadow".

    I wish her luck, but my goodness, must be scary as HELL to try and portray an icon like Judy Garland!

    I just saw her in 'Rachel Getting Married,' and I must say she is one hell of an actress, and seems to be getting better with every film. I really hope you're right Mary! She also sang on the Academy Awards telecast and I too was impressed!

    I totally agree about Judy Davis and Tammy Blanchard, they were both so damn good in that movie. Judy Davis is without peer really, she's amazing in everything...did you happen to see Blanchard as Gypsy Rose Lee in Sam Mendes' B'way version of "Gypsy" a few years ago with Bernadette Peters? We came out your way solely to see that show, and saw it 3 times! I've been waiting for Tammy to hit it big ever since, she was so good!

    I was initially surprised at Anne Hathaway as a choice, but given her strong acting in several films I think she'll be great.

    I think that Judy Davis is the only person who could play Judy. I saw her in the lifetime movie aobut Judy Garland (I think it was called My and My shadows: the life of judy garland), and it was like I was looking at the real thing.
    I'm a little like Tinkerbell. You know how she'll die if no one claps for her? DO YOU WANT ME TO DIE???!!!!???!!?!?!?!? CLAP!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can't find an audio link to it anywhere, but I have a new respect for Judy Garland (and I loved her before), after hearing some of the crap she went through on the radio guest star circuit. She was no more than 15 and there were some downright salicious jokes made at her expense. (How some of them got past the censors, I'll never know).

    There's an episode of Eddie Cantor's show where he's so busy making fun of her background (like he was the crown prince of England) that you can hear her voice break when she tries to parry back. And Bob Hope's sexual innuendos were ridiculous "Give me a drag on that before you pass it around". I mean please.

    She wasn't the only one, but she lasted a lot longer. This is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the crap she and her ilk went through in their careers. No wonder so many of them end up such tragic figures.

    You can't "nu uh" death. That's bad debating.

    I haven't been logged onto the forum for awhile so I missed the June 22nd anniversary of Judy Garland's death. Famous deaths are in the forefront of the news right now. I was thinking of Judy Garland on June 22nd. I definitely remember when I heard of her death 40 years ago when I was 10 years old. I remember saying to my mother: "Oh no...Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz can't be dead!" She was only 47 (3 years younger than Michael Jackson at death).

    Wasn't she? It's a shame what the standards of beauty are. Then and now. I thought she was stunning!
    Say, did you guys hear those taped phone calls from her "biggest fan", Wayne Martin? What a rotten thing to do! You can hear Lorna in the background protecting her "Mama".
