Trivia

Although the reviews for "The Judy Garland Show" were good, and she was on her best professional behavior throughout, the show was beaten in the ratings, virtually every week, by Bonanza (1959) on rival network NBC. This, coupled with the fact that then-CBS President James Aubrey intensely disliked Garland, and didn't bother to hide it, ultimately doomed the show to a one-season run. Its failure is thought, by some, to be one of the major contributing factors to Garland's final tormented years and subsequent early death. See more »

One Of The 20th Century's Most Dynamic Performers Shines Here!
11 September 2007 | by stalzz64See all my reviews

If you love (or even like) Judy Garland at all, you will like/love this short-lived Judy Garland Show series. This is an incredibly well done, well staged and a very cool show to see.

Those of us who were not alive at the time of the original airings of this wonderful variety show really missed out on something special. The series has rarely been seen by the public since the 1960's.

I thank the creators/producers of this DVD series for making these programs available to the public for the first time in over 40 years.

A mere 26 weeks on the air, Judy and her wonderful guest stars really shine in the presentations of the programs. The original Video Tape has obviously been well preserved in a vault somewhere since 1963-1964, because the picture and sound are among some of the best quality I have ever seen from programs of this era!

A super sharp clear picture and audio that is remastered to Dolby 5.1 stereo--It may look and sound better than when it first aired!

If you love classic TV shows of the great variety show era, This series is for you! And.... you can buy individual DVD's with two to three shows per disc!

There are a few extras included in the form of show outtakes.

I have seen 5 episodes so far, and I really do highly recommend this short-lived, fabulously wonderful, superbly cool series! You go, Judy!
