Editorial Reviews

Ending its critically acclaimed, Emmy-nominated CBS-TV run after just one season (1963-64), the show's 26 episodes are revered by many today as the beloved entertainer's finest work.

Joining Judy in this star-studded, two-episode set are 'the undisputed First Lady of the musical comedy stage,' actress and singer Ethel Merman; treasured comedian, actor, author and playwright Shelley Berman; dancer and choreographer Peter Gennaro; celebrated crooner Vic Damone, who had 'the best pipes in the business' according to Frank Sinatra; Tony Award-winning actress-singer-dancer Chita Rivera, Broadway's original Anita in West Side Story; comedy actor Louis Nye, who appeared on dozens of shows over his 40+ year career; and versatile showman Ken Murray.

Features selections from West Side Story, Gypsy, Porgy and Bess, Anything Goes, Brigadoon, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and more!

4.0 out of 5 stars From the ridiculous to the sublime... July 20, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
At last another volume of episodes from the great Garland and her legendary variety series of 1963-1964. This volume runs the spectrum from the sublime ('Judy in Concert' episodes #24 and #25) to the ridiculous (Judy and the Dillards?!) and serves as an excellent illustration that despite embarrassingly sub par material and the meddling of a network that seemed hell-bent to destroy her series, Judy remained Judy...in a class by herself. Episode #8 is particularly embarrassing for the producers as Judy is forced to duet with a woefully "out of his element" George Maharis (?!) and chat about baseball with Leo Durocher. Still, Garland manages to rise above it and give one of her most moving performances ("I Wish You Love") and gamely agrees to go head to head with "The Dillards". It is particularly telling that, in his audio commentary, executive producer Norman Jewison avoids discussing this episode, and indeed the entire series, and instead focuses on Judy's 1961 comeback special which he also produced. When he does refer to the series, he comes off not only as unknowledgeable (referring to episode #6 guest star June Allyson as "Fran Allyson"), but as a colossal bore, relating that same "Over the Rainbow"/Kennedy anecdote that he has told everytime he is interviewed about Garland, and denigrating original series producer George Schlatter's superior prior episodes. In hindsight, it is all too apparent that the dismissal of Schlatter and the hiring of Jewison was the beginning of the end for the series. On the brighter side, side two that is, we have the Judy of legend...the great Garland doing what she did best: standing alone on a stage with an orchestra behind her, and blowing through two dozen or so songs with the command and mastery of a true artist at the peak of her powers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Going Strong! December 20, 2000
Format:DVD
What I enjoy most about this DVD is that it also has the outtakes included and you can choose to either watch the program as it originally aired or WITH all of the outtakes which gives an idea of how a show is put together and what a professional Ms. Garland was. Never to just pick up where she left off and to hell with continuity; No! As a true professional would do, she would go right back to the beginning and start all over, as is shown with the intricate "Kismet" medley which was written for Ms. Garland and Mr. Damone to perform. Also, this set has two of her concert format tapings which are absolutely wonderful! I still look forward to the Streisand show and pray that they are going to include Show #26, the final taping and include the outtakes from that taping.
There are possibly TWO drawbacks with this set of shows. This disc shows the insanity on the part of CBS to try and make Ms. Garland appear "homey," by including a ridiculous segment involving Jerry Van Dyke and the Dillards, some hillbilly group! The other drawback is the audio commentary provided by Mr. Norman Jewison, one of the show's producers. The audio commentary provided by Mr. George Schlatter on one of the original DVD set is better and seems much more personal, whereas Mr. Jewison's seems rambling, at times.
BUT, it's still Judy; still wonderful, still unforgettable and still the best damned performer of any time! Forget Streisand and her insane need to control every aspect of a production! Forget Madonna, Dion, Aretha, LaBelle, Tina and Ms. Ross, etc. There will always be only ONE true Diva --- Judy Garland!

Format:DVD
Pioneer Artists with the release of the Judy Garland Show, which CBS ran during from 1963-1964 and consisted of 26 shows has done a first class job of mastering these DVD's.
Volume IV which includes guests, Louis Jordan,The Kirby Stone Four,Jack Carter,Robert Cole,George Maharis, Vic Damone is just a treat to watch.
The comedy at time is a bit forced and Judy looks unnatural in that role in particular the episodes with George Maharis and Leo Durocher but overall the grace and class of Miss Garland shines through.
There is a spot with Ken Murray a sometime actor who took some fabulous home movies of early Hollywood with clips showing behind the scenes with actors such as Bing Crosby,John Barrymore, Rudy Vallee to name a few that are simply priceless.
Judy does a bit with Leo Durocher which includes a rendition of "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" is of historical interest due to the fact that Mr. Durocher refers to the upcoming World Series against the New York Yankees.
The series was due to start in about a weeks time and the Los Angeles Dodgers who were underdogs in that series would go on to sweep the Yankees 4-0.
The Bluegrass group The Dillards, who were riding a huge wave of popularity at that time make an appearance playing up their "Hillbilly" ancestry and are quite entertaining as musicians.
The highlights have to be Judy's rendition of "Old Man River" and her singing of "The Battle Hymn Of The Republic",which she sings with such conviction and emotion that she literally makes that song come alive.
A comic rendition of the "Platters" Smoke gets in your eyes" is hilarious as Judy continues to sing as the faux set behind her is dismantled.
