I don't beg. I don't beg.
You don't beg. You just damn well assume. Everything you want, you get.
You haven't changed. You never will. You're nothing but a self-centered, grasping, egocentric little bitch. And you're a cheat.

Judy's last film ranks among her greatest as she lurches along as Jenny Bowman, grasping, insecure, and in life pretty much washed up. Echoes of Miss Garland's tragic real life cloud this film in places but that only serves to make it more effective. The three songs are superb and I only wish there had been more. Dirk Bogarde gives good support in a performance which by necessity is in the shadow of the tempestuous star. Seems better every viewing and highly recommended for Judy fans.
