Judy Garland
Judy Garland was Hollywood’s greatest female musical
star, a doe-eyed, ordinary-looking American girl with a
genius for singing. No one ever entranced an audience
as she did over the 15 years she was MGM’s leading lady
and thereafter, when she proved herself to be arguably
the world’s most electrifying live concert performer.
“Born in a trunk,” as she recounted so
memorably in
A Star Is Born
, Garland was
the ultimate “show business baby.” Few
performers created the infectious kinship
with a live audience that she did, and her
place in our collective memory has taken on
full-blown cult status. Fred Miller’s Lecture-
In-Song on Judy Garland pays full tribute
to this alternately fragile and overwhelming
performer—the endearing, enduring
waif who continues to eclipse all the
competition.
