It was on TCM last week! Yeah, it’s on blu-ray, in the TCM store! The plot is like mehhhh and Fred is generally adorable but practically NO chemistry w/Paulette Goddard.

They were both orphans from Vietnam. Amelia Leigh was adopted in 1974, and Joanna Lynne was adopted in 1975.
I went to this costume exhibit and one of her dresses was there with a little moving screen of her head above the dress with RED RED hair- I started ranting right there and showing people pics of her blonde…
The worst part was that the dress was from Lady In The Dark- I mean come on! That movie was actually in colour, how can you get it wrong??
A Star Is Born (1954)
Late in 1952 the final agreement required to make a musical of the 1937 screen classic A Star is Born was signed when Ira Gershwin consented to write the lyrics. Arlen and Gershwin knew they had to create a dramatic song for Judy Garland that allowed her to not only demonstrate her fine singing abilities, but also her flair for acting. The song that they created is The Man That Got Away. It was during the work on this score in February 1953 that Harold’s father, Cantor Samuel Arluck, died. Harold, deeply affected and distressed by his father’s passing, forced himself to keep working.
Judy Garland pre-recorded the song on September 3, 1953.
According to sound man Earl Bellamy: “When Judy sang to playback, you could never hear anything…She wanted me to start off at a full blast and then she topped that…her huge voice carrying out over the rafters. You could hear Judy clear as a bell, and she sang right with it…”
Judy, circa 1943.
My dad asked for my sister and I to set up the Christmas tree, we couldn’t find the decorations but we improvised…
I’m so tired, it’s 10.30pm and I’m still at work. Still it was the gala night tonight and one if the acts sang Judy and Barbra’s ‘Happy Days/Get Happy’ so that was nice to listen to
