Personal Quote:

[on Judy Garland] The studio was very patient with her. You had to be with this great talent. I simply thought she was bored, so I would devise difficult bits of business to keep her preoccupied. But this widespread notion that the studio somehow destroyed her is nonsense. Her personal life got too much for her. I prefer to think of her as she is in "The Harvey Girls" near the peak of her talent.

Trivia:

Was an innovator who paired live actors like Gene Kelly on screen with animated characters like cartoon mouse Jerry in Anchors Aweigh (1945). See more »
