The great Judy Garland was born 99 years ago today
Our original beloved gay icon who was born 99 years ago today.
We fell in love with her as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz and stayed in love through her many other movies including Easter Parade, Meet Me in St. Louis, Summer Stock, The Harvey Girls and A Star is Born.
Then there was the one glorious season of The Judy Garland Show and her final movies Judgment at Nuremberg and I Could Go on Singing.
The end came too soon – on June 22, 1969 at the age of 47 of an accidental drug overdose.
What a talent, what a woman.
We will never forget her – obviously.
Here are some later interviews and some classic performances.
