This coming together of three legends of the swing era was a special episode of Judy Garland's TV show, and what an interesting showcase it is.
Judy is not at her best throughout, coming across as nervy in her staged segments with Dean and Frank, but in two sections she is sensational singing 'The Man That Got Away', and in the concert bit at the end, with 'Swanee' and many other favourites. Seeing this tiny lady belting out a variety of songs is a joy.
Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra are as sleek and classy as ever in their bits, especially when Frank sings 'One For My Baby'. This really is as good as it gets, and despite the strained in-jokes here and there, the overall effect puts it firmly in the 'damn good' bracket.
