Trivia

The character of Lottie was a combination of two people: Carlton Alsop (then husband of actress Sylvia Sidney) and Sid Luft's business partner Vern Alves. See more »

Goofs

Judy sings the wrong "Eli Eli" to Louis Mayer. We hear her sing an Israeli song that begins "Eli Eli" but had not yet been written at the time. (It's more properly known as "Walking to Caesaria.") An entirely different "Eli Eli," one of the most popular Jewish songs in the early days of the phonograph, is what we should have heard. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: It broke Mama's heart when CBS cancelled The Judy Garland Show. So, in the finest Gumm family tradition, we packed up our trunks and took the family act back out on the road. Mama *had* to keep working to pay off her debts, but work required more than she had left, and that meant more amphetamines to carry her through.

She overcame the Wicked Witch only to be destroyed by demons
11 January 2002 | by (Palmerston North, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Lorna Luft wrote and produced this epic tale of her mother Judy Garland's often-tragic life in the spotlight.

Frances Gumm starts her life out becoming an actress and singer. She changes her name to Judy Garland and signs a contract with MGM studios who promise her a big break.

That break comes in the form of Dorothy Gale in The Wizard Of Oz. But fame comes at a price. Addictions to drugs and alcohol plus failed marriages and piles of debt leave Judy sprialling out of control.

It's the touching true story of Judy Garland. From her humble beginnings to her dramatic end, this is quite simply, brilliant.

Tammy Blanchard, who plays the younger Judy Garland is so much like her, it's not even funny - and her acting is fantastic, also. 9/1O
