An incredible documentation!!!
2 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

By far, this is the best documentary I've ever seen, hands down! I first saw it when my sister taped it off PBS at our beach house back in 1987; I was seven years old. Afterwards, we watched it continuously over the years and I was thrilled when it was released on DVD in Nov., 2002. I still watch it at least once every 6-8 weeks simply because I love that vintage TV look it contains. Seeing those clips of Judy's incredibly impressive variety show (which was unforgivably canceled after only one season merely because its ratings could not compare to BONANZA which ran the same night on NBC, Judy's show was on CBS) still gives me that happy, nostalgic feeling. Standouts are her duets with Tony Bennett, Liza, Lena Horne and of course Barbra Streisand. Another must-have for Judy fans is the recent DVD release of her variety show which includes all the above guest appearances as well as dozens of other episodes, including her much-loved Christmas show episode (which has now become an annual holiday standard). The episode with Barbra's guest appearance is said to have been the most-requested home video release in all of TV history. With Judy's daughter, Lorna Luft as host, Melissa Manchester, Tony Bennett, Garland's arranger/conductor Mort Lindsay, Edward Albee, Nelson Riddle and Alan King are among the several commentators who voiced their opinions and praise for Judy and most, if not all, of what each of them said was exact and compliant with the level of talent and sheer charisma that she projected in every single performance she gave. This show is a loving tribute to the world's greatest entatertainer... Judy Garland!
