Found treasure
27 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

Long thought lost (some earlier bios of Judy Garland mention this film as being gone..) we are lucky to be able to see a very early view of Baby Gumm and The Gumm Sisters. Of course, later, we would know Baby Frances Gumm as Judy Garland. This short has a surreal look, the faded black and white tend to make the faces of made up kids look bizarre and Cirque du Soileil-like. All is strange and wonderful, then the Gumm sisters take the stage and we get a glimpse into the early Gumm sisters act. The camera obviously loves Frances and we see the scene-stealing she would be known for the rest of her life. This short is made available sometimes when Turner Classic Movies does a Judy special in June of each year, watch for it between movies as a time-killer.
