...THAT CERTAIN SOMETHING. The great ones - they have that electrifying quality, that certain something, that makes the world applaud them - and give them their heart. Judy Garland is one of that breed. She has that special something that goes beyond singing - a dynamic, dramatic dimension that is her gift...and her greatness. Now - in "I COULD GO ON SINGING" - you see Judy as Jenny Bowman, a star on top of the world. But why is it - the greater the star, the deeper the hurt? Jenny found that all the spotlights in the world couldn't give her the warmth she needed - or the love she threw away too many years ago. And Judy Garland as Jenny Bowman is sheer magnificence...singing, acting, capturing your every emotion. See more »

Just hang on to that, will you, hang on to it.
Well I've hung on to every bit of rubbish there is to hang on to in life. And I've thrown all the good bits away. Now can you tell me why I do that?
No, no I can't tell you why you do that. But I can tell you this, you are going to be late.
I don't care!

To be honest, I am not REALLY a Judy Garland fanatic, even though I ought to be. I found her TV show extremely entertaining when I saw them on DVD, and, well, how can one NOT be entertained by the Wizard Of Oz? And I've seen snippets of her here and there. I begin this review of 'I Could Go On Singing' saying this and defending my uh, un-Judy Garland obsessiveness, and then say that I found this movie incredibly entertaining! It's as if they got her to play herself during the last portion of her life, what, being a total singing diva, and let the audience go home happy. In this movie, she plays a famous singer who meets up with an old flame (played low-key to the hilt by Dirk Bogarde) to try to meet up with her son who she abandoned long ago, soon after meeting, she wants to keep him! But Bogarde says no! Oh no! What is she to do? Yes, that's pretty much the plot. But who cares when you get to see La Judy in action, singing, bitching and chewing everyone up and spitting everyone out? This is nothing but fun, and well, not Kramer Vs. Kramer. I really would recommend this to anyone, because this could entertain anyone, Judy fan or not (I tell you I'm not!!!!)
