Songs I Wish Judy Garland Had Sung: A Memoir
Judy Garland in 3D
You need to have a pair of the blue/red 3D glasses to see this properly (and don’t stare at it for too long or it hurts your eyes :P)
Judy Garland and Fred Astaire died on the same day.
Finally, someone else noticed this!
WHAT HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS
Yep, seriously! It was in different years (Judy went first), but the day itself was the same for both, June 22nd!
OMG I never knew this
There’s something about two of the greatest stars dying on the same day that gives me the chills
She’s so brilliantly funny, she told us loads of stories from behind the scenes of a couple of her films, and one particularly funny one about Carol Burnett, and it was a woman in the audience’s birthday and she got asked to wish her a happy birthday, but rather than just do that she sang happy birthday to her, and got the whole audience to sing along. And at the end of the evening she and Nicholas Hammond stood up and sang Edelweiss with everybody.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY HUMPHREY BOGART & LAUREN BACALL
One night in 1953, Bogie, John Huston and some other friends were shooting the breeze rather tipsily about life and its meaning and the question arose as to whether there was any time of their lives they’d like to live over again. All of them except Bogie came up with cynical answers. Somebody said, “God forbid”. Somebody else: that he’d only like to cancel out a couple of times. Then Bogie spoke. “Yes, there’s a time I’d like to relive- the years that I have had with Betty.”
-Joe Hyams, Bogart & Bacall.
I was a kid in love for the first time. I was easy for me - I knew nothing about pitfalls. I was giving nothing but myself and I could do that without qualm. Never in my life had or has a man cared so much for me, wanted so much to protect me, surrond me with life’s joys, share everything. It made me want to return the care- to show him it was possiblle to be really happy with a woman, to give him children. I was determined to do that.
These two just melt and break my heart at the same time. I don’t know of any couple that displays such bald-faced affection and sweetness on the screen, they’re just lovely.
And the way they talk about each other just…UGH, my heart.

She’s doing a show here “An Evening With Julie Andrews” I think it’s called. I’m so excited, I’m just about to leave to see it now!
In 1944 Gloria De Haven came into the makeup and hair department at MGM to wash her hair in prep for a scene she was going to shoot. Halfway into the endeavor she felt a hand push her head into the bowl and began washing her hair. When she was finished she looked up and saw that it was Marlene Dietrich who had washed her hair. Dietrich had entered the room to pick up the gold paint she was using to cover her left leg in “Kismet” and figured that since she was there she would give De Haven a quick hair wash since the studio beauticians had yet to arrive. De Haven was so stunned that she could hardly utter a thank you.
