Garland's "Forgotten" Childhood Recordings Fail To Sell

18 December 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The Wizard Of Oz star Judy Garland's childhood recordings failed to sell at a Los Angeles auction yesterday when bidding did not match the minimum price. The songs were taped in a Hollywood recording studio in March 1935, when a 12-year-old Garland sang "Good Ship Lollypop," "Object Of My Affections" and "Dinah," accompanied by her mother on piano. But bidding at Bonhams And Butterfields auction house reached just $22,500 - well short of the $40,000 expected price. The unnamed owner of the two previously-unheard acetate discs, which were discovered in the rubbish at one of Garland's former homes in Beverly Hills, is expected to attempt to sell them again in the near future. Garland died in 1969 of a prescription drug overdose. She was 47. »

Deschanel Confirmed for Joplin Film

20 September 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Elf actress Zooey Deschanel has replaced singer Pink as Janis Joplin in the biopic Gospel According To Janis. The singer pulled out of the Penelope Spheeris film earlier this year and, after much speculation, Deschanel was eventually selected to take over the role. The script has gone through several revisions and now focuses on former Rolling Stone writer David Dalton, who was once assigned to write a cover story comparing the troubled Joplin to Judy Garland. Dalton accompanied the singer on a long tour and his adventures have become the central plot for the film. Deschanel has spent the past four months working with a vocal coach to help her mimic Joplin's gritty vocals, and she will sing all of Joplin's songs featured in the film. According to producer Peter Newman, it has been a struggle to find an actress who could sing or a singer who could act. He says, "Zooey is the first we found who excels at both." Filming will begin on November 13 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the film is scheduled for release in 2008. Oscar winner Renee Zellweger is attached to another film about Joplin's life, but it is currently on hold at Paramount Pictures while the script is reworked. »
