Watching this film makes me appreciate the considerable talents of Garland all over again. She was a true "DIVA", the like of which do not exist anymore.

In the semi-autobiographical role of Jenny Bowman, Garland gives an amazingly vulnerable and vital performance. She's in great vocal and physical form for the musical numbers, and although she doesn't look her best (you'd swear she was 10 years older than her actual age), she's fully engaged dramatically as well. Her hospital scene with Dirk Bogarde, where she talks about the life of a performer, has so much subtle shifting between emotions that it takes one's breath away. That alone should have earned her an Academy Award for this performance.
But the film offers even more than that. It's extremely well directed by Ronald Neame. The musical numbers boast very creative camerawork that considerably heightens the excitement -- "It Never Was You" is a case in point. They are the closest we have to seeing Judy Garland "in concert" in a movie (it can be argued that her TV series did the same on the smaller screen).
And the supporting performances are very fine. Bogarde, always an excellent actor, holds his own against the force of nature that is Garland by playing yin to her yang. The other actors are equally good. The script, too, is solid, and it refuses to take the easy "happy ending" route at the end, to its credit.
Unfortunately, MGM has released this movie with minimal care. The image transfer should have been much better (the reds, in particular, are highly unstable). As another reviewer mentioned, the DVD should have been anamorphic (enhanced for widescreen television).Read more ›

Buyer beware. Despite what the package says, this MOD dvd-r is NOT 16:9 widescreen. The disc I received was basically a dvd-r of the old unanamorphic letterboxed dvd. Read morePublished 13 months ago by John M.
Okay, time for a little reality check. Yes, it's Judy Garland & it is her last film with some brilliant moments, despite the soap-operaesque script, which even she & Bogarde found... Read morePublished 20 months ago by Jude Barnes
