Storyline

As originally released, this started off with Kay Kyser and His Kollege of Musical Knowledge with a musical version of 'Playmates'; this was followed by Judy Garland singing 'If I Forget You'; Bette Davis finished up with a plea to the audience to give their nickels and dimes on behalf of the Will Rogers Memorial Commission. Presently, only three minutes of the Garland footage seems to have survived on Turner Classic Movies. Written by Anonymous

Judy Garland sings a tribute to Will Rogers
26 September 2002 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

Harmless little number, filmed, I think, as part of a fundraising effort for a hospital bearing Will Rogers name. As sung by the charming Judy Garland--she hits a particularly nice high note at one point--the number comes off as under-rehearsed, but nonetheless worth a watch and a listen.
