Judy Garland had one of the most photographed faces ever to come out of Hollywood. She also had one of the most frequently recorded voices of the last century. She is as iconic as she is misunderstood. There were her problems, to be sure, but the proof is in the performances, from The Wizard of Oz to the Palladium, from the Oscars to the Grammies. With singular entrée to the MGM library, including vaulted screen tests and rehearsal footage, this film is wrapped in Garland’s voice, telling her story in her own words. So many outsiders have tried to tell this story and so many friends and family have weighed in — now Judy gets center stage, all to herself. This is her ultimate comeback. Click here to learn more.

The film won Garland an Academy Award nomination as Best Actress and — in a movie career that spanned 1929 to 1963 — stands as her quintessential motion picture showcase.
