In a career that spanned five decades and encompassed stardom in every medium, Judy Garland's professional achievments remain unsurpassed in their power to excite and thrill audiences of all ages. Now her timeless joy comes alive in this book, the one type of book never before assembled to define her on-and-off-stage 'talent to amuse'. Historian John fricke presents hundreds of rare and previously unpublished photos, studio memorabilia and personal mementos from the Garland estate along with scores of anecdotes drawn from interviews with her professional colleagues, friends, family and Judy herself. Decade by decade, her incomparable accomplishments on stage, film, tb, radio and recordings, are lovingly illustrated and remembered by those who knew her best...and loved her most, Often funny, sometimes poignant, but always fascinating, this book singularly conveys the happiness that Garland's own great and buoyantly emotional performances have brought to hundreds of millions of admirers.
