Fun History For Judy Fans
27 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

By the time this short was filmed the Gumm/Garland Sisters act was all but disbanded as Judy was coming more and more to the spotlight. This was an early MGM experiment with 3 strip technicolor and they pulled out a lot of stops to have stars of MGM in this short. The Garland Sisters perform " La Cucaracha" in Mexican-type garb but they are rather hard to see as they (especially Judy) were filmed almost entirely in profile. You just don't get a good enough look at Judy here. It's fun history trivia, the first appearance by Judy on a "Hollywood" picture, but for a better early performance by Judy in a short, see her with Deanna Durbin in "Every Sunday".
