Judy Garland, age 15, sings "Silent Night"--Two charming minutes!
18 May 2002 | by (New York City, USA) – See all my reviews

TCM revives this two-minute short every Christmas, and what an unpretentious treat it is. A greetings card shot of snowflakes falling on a tiny church cuts to 15-year-old Judy Garland singing "Silent Night," as lovely a rendition of this traditional favorite as you'll ever hear. Thanks, once again, to TCM, for unearthing a lost treasure.
