Overview

The diminutive performer with the magical effect on audiences remains the stuff of legend more than twenty years after her death. Intended for those who feel that the most important aspect of Judy Garland's life is her professional legacy, this authoritative and stunning text and picture celebration drawing largely on private archives and unpublished materials has been created for those who want to discover all the facts behind the career of the world's greatest entertainer. Judy Garland worked for nearly forty-five of her forty-seven years. She made thirty-two feature films, did voice-over work for two more, and appeared in at least a half dozen short subjects.

She recorded nearly one hundred singles and over a dozen record albums; Judy at Carnegie Hall received an unprecedented five Grammy Awards in 1962 including Album of the Year and has never been out of print. Her radio work encompassed several hundred broadcasts, and she sang at countless benefits and personal appearances for the military.

But she could also convey joy with unparalleled success, and she seemed to epitomize the showman's determination to rise above obstacles and to carry on whatever the
