Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Judy Garland] The studio was very patient with her. You had to be with this great talent. I simply thought she was bored, so I would devise difficult bits of business to keep her preoccupied. But this widespread notion that the studio somehow destroyed her is nonsense. Her personal life got too much for her. I prefer to think of her as she is in "The Harvey Girls" near the peak of her talent.


Was an innovator who paired live actors like Gene Kelly on screen with animated characters like cartoon mouse Jerry in Anchors Aweigh (1945). See more »
