Judy Garland is primed for her biggest comeback ever - the dazzling star of her own TV special, broadcast live on Christmas Eve. Guests Bing Crosby (mixing holiday "grog"), Ethel Merman (plugging her Hawaiian album), and Liberace (with a handsome sailor) highlight the festivities, but mysterious snafus behind the scenes and the cameo appearance of V.P. Richard Nixon throw Judy's program off course. When acerbic playwright Lillian Hellman is forced to read "Children's Letters to Santa" with a puppet, the blacklisted writer turns on commie-baiting Nixon with no holds barred. Surprises climax when the arrival of Joan Crawford is interrupted by the spectral figure of.Death. The evening takes a detour into the twilight zone as the celebrities (including Crawford) are forced to confront the lies behind their legends. Devastated and alone, Judy meets a special fan who ultimately proves to her that, despite her flaws, her shining legacy still endures. "Magical! A side-splitting musical parody.wickedly funny!" - Los Angeles Times "Wonderfully strange.a true holiday treat!" - Hollywood Reporter "A non-stop hoot! - Backstage West "Hilarious! A surreal snow globe highball; a Hollywood Christmas card from beyond the grave!" - Portland Mercury
