JUDY GARLAND WAS A GRAND GENIUS
HER SINGING VOICE COULD BREAK HER HEART
It wasn't simply dancing along with her grand dancing and enormous skills in films with Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. Critic Penelope Houston was the best.
Judy Garland had a high-strung vitality that was uniquely stimulating on the stage and the movies. She was born Frances Gumm, in 1922, in Grand Rapids and Minnesota. Garland was put under at MGM and the same thing happend. Durbin's contract was allowed by Louis B. Mayer. He was very angry by Mayer.
Audiences also found that Garland Critics thrilled and charmed for the audiences around the World. Shirley Temple had her legendary status was assured. Louis B. Mayer decided to drop Deanna Durbin. Garland went on with "The Wizard of Oz" still legendary is the greatest! Right now people are still seeing on the Big Screens. Garland is still that "Star is Born!" She blossomed under Vincente Minnelli's direction. They later married. Sad that it fell to pieces later.
Garland died of alcoholism and drug addiction. Tragic cases like Judy Garland's. So she went on with personal problems. If she didn't drink as much - her blazing-comet career could have been altered a lot. Yep - her shows were intense.
