In the pantheon of movie stars who will live forever in the memories of cinema fans, few burn brighter than Judy Garland.

She lived a well documented life of extraordinariness, from her big screen breakthrough in The Wizard of Oz on through A Star is Born and Meet Me in St. Louis. There was no medium she couldn’t conquer, whether it was movies, radio or, later, television.

Wherever she went, whatever she did, she was universally respected for her God-given talent and adored for her smile and spunk.

JOHN FRICKE audio excerpt: “Judy Garland married the wrong men again and again or trusted the wrong men again and again. It must have been very difficult for someone who was as intelligence as Judy was, to keep picking herself up and starting over, realizing she had yet again made the same mistakes.”

There have been, of course, entire bookshelves of research and publications devoted to the magic of Garland and it could be argued that what the world didn’t need was another coffee table book of pictures and facts about the actress who brought Dorothy Gale to life in 1939.

But biographer John Fricke – who also wrote The Wizard of Oz: An Illustrated Companion to the Timeless Movie Classic — knows his subject better than most and found a fresh way to present his case for another print celebration of her life and art.

Judy: A Legendary Film Career breaks down the movies of the actress and singer into four parts of her life. It then entertains the reader with synopses, cast lists, behind-the-scenes credits, musical numbers when appropriate and photos. Lots and lots of great photos.

If you love Judy Garland, you’ll love this book.
