Product Description

Like other iconic performers of her era, Judy Garland was nearly as well known for the scandal surrounding her personal life as she was for her bigger-than-life talent. But early on, she stood out as one of MGM's brightest stars, even among a stable of Hollywood's biggest names. In 1939, won she won a special Academy Award for Best Juvenile Performer (originally intended for Shirley Temple) for The Wizard of Oz, setting her course to superstardom. The Emmy-nominated Judy Garland Show ended its critically acclaimed CBS-TV run after just one season (1963-64). Today, those 26 variety shows are revered by many as the entertainment icon's finest work. In volume two, Judy is joined for an extravaganza of song, dance and comedy by Barbra Streisand, The Smothers Brothers, Ethel Merman, Jane Powell, Ray Bolger (her co-star in The Wizard of Oz) and series regular Jerry Van Dyke. Restored and digitally remastered from the original masters, this dynamic diva will move you like no one else! Look for all 13 volumes, each featuring two 50-minute shows. Bonus Features: Outtakes; original mono sound and 5.1 surround sound.

Vol. 2 of the 2009 release of Judy Garland's 1963-64 black-and-white variety show begins with the famous episode (recorded October 4, 1963 and broadcast two days later) featuring a 21-year-old Barbra Streisand singing such songs as "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" and "Down with Love" by herself, then a number of songs with Garland, including the medley of "Get Happy" and "Happy Days Are Here Again" in counterpoint. Ethel Merman comes out of the audience and joins the two stars for "There's No Business Like Show Business," and as they talk Streisand mentions that her next big project will be Funny Girl. The Smothers Brothers also appear, and Garland ends the show with her traditional "Born in a Trunk" solo sequence, performing "You Made Me Love You," "For Me and My Gal," and "The Trolley Song." The second episode on the disc (recorded October 11, 1963 and broadcast March 13, 1964) has a Wizard of Oz feel, with guest star Ray Bolger dancing to Garland's singing, and the two reminiscing about Oz and breaking into "We're Off to See the Wizard." Garland participates in an elaborate production number of "The Jitterbug" (cut from Oz) with the other guest, Jane Powell, the two do a comedy number with series regular Jerry Van Dyke (Dick's younger brother), and Powell performs "Dear Friend" from She Loves Me, which had opened on Broadway only six months earlier. Garland closes the show with her solo renditions of "When Your Lover Has Gone" and "Some People." Though it lasted only one season, The Judy Garland Show remains a valuable archive of music variety shows in the 1960s and of Garland's life and legacy. --David Horiuchi

Shameful treatment of a wonderful TV show. Garland and her show deserve better. The Streisand/Smothers Brothers episode is edited and is in no way an improvement upon the picture quality of the orginal Pioneer release. So glad I have all of the original Pioneer releases and encourage others to find them as well. I WILL not but any future releases.

Volume 1 of this series came out and did not live up to its promise. The shows are edited and the packaging is poor. No serious effort was made in the quality department. I kept Volume 1, hoping for a better result in the next release. Volume 2 arrived today and is as bad or worse than the first was -- I have decided to return it for refund. If this company can keep an audience long enough to release all 13 volumes, it will be a miracle to me. This item was another big disappointment.

I just got Volume 2 in the mail and must say that I am disappointed by the product. I bought volume one when it came out a few months back, the packaging for both volumes are totally different! Volume 1 is in a thin case.. while Volume 2 is in a standard plastic case. The quality of the sound is AMAZING but the new transfer is a bit shoddy and there a times when the image looks "digital".. gone is the dreamy soft quality of the previous releases. Also, I am a bit confused by the release order on these discs. The Pioneer releases are in chronological order.. these new volumes are not. And there is hardly any written info included with these disks.. the copy on the back of the DVD case is mere filler regarding Judy's life.. nothing regarding the show. All in all these shows are nice to listen to.. sometimes good to look at.. but they cut the wonder that is Judy short!

I just got this vol 2 of Judys show. First of all I want to state I am a HUGE Judy Garland fan- She was the best their ever was - HOWEVER.........this dvd as along with vol 1 is EDITED !! I was really disappointed with this product. Why sell a show espeacilly Judys that is edited? It starts out at the begining after the credits- Judy is about to announce her guests - all she said was she had a really good show tonite and bam to the next scene where she introduces the Smother Bros.......... a whole scene was cut where they all came on and talked a bit and Judy sang Be My Guest - all gone. I really recommend getting the Pioneer Box set released about 10 years ago if you can find it- Its all complete and I think the quality is alot better on those sets- these current releases do not look at all- that remastered as stated PLUS on the cases of the dvd it says deleted scenes. They are no where to be found on this set on either vol so far- no extras but they say they do--The Pioneer set has tons of extras and cut stuff and all And one more thing - the first vol came in a really nice thin case with picures ect of Judy - real cute and slim with colorful stuff- this vol 2 came in a cheap flimsy dvd case - those fat ones you find at the dollar stores........ needless to say I wont be buying any further volumes - I will just watch my 2 Pioneer box sets I purchased on the first go around of this series. Judy deserves a better release of this timeless classic - The Show That Got Away !

I really bought this DVD as a present for my wife because Judy Garland sings "A Cottage For Sale", a song written by my wife's father. I had no idea how really great these shows were until we watched the DVD. They contained wonderful performances by not only Judy Garland, but by Lena Horne, Jerry Van Dyke, the very funny Terry Thomas and a VERY young looking Mel Torme'! I also want to comment on the outstanding quality of the picture and sound. Except for the fact that it was recorded in black and white, it looked like it could have been made yesterday instead of over 35 years ago!

Let me start off by saying that I'm a huge Judy Garland fan. Having said that, trust me when I say that if you are a Judy Garland fan, you must buy this DVD. Actually you should buy the entire collection. The reason I say this is because Judy sounds wonderful. The shows offer a glimpse into a time when Judy Garland was by many accounts healthier & happier than she'd been for some time. The shows feature Judy singing songs you remember her singing & some that she hadn't sung publicly before. There are some well known guests, some just beginning their career & some who were in the prime of their career but make no mistake, it is Judy's show. If you are a Judy Garland fan you will love this DVD, If you only know Judy Garland from The Wizard Of Oz, do yourself a favor & buy this DVD, you won't be sorry. Once you watch this DVD you will be back on Amazon buying the rest of the collection. I'm not a professional reviewer so if you read my review & aren't convinced to buy this DVD, then you will be missing out on a musical talent that doesn't come around very often.

Although these 2 episodes don't contain quite as much vocal footage of Judy, they are still superb. This is vintage T.V. at it's finest and a "not to be missed" addition to any Judy Garland fan's collection of performances. Her performances during this time of her life are all so precious and few that all are worth watching and worth owning. Jerry Van Dyke (sometimes a forgotten entity of 60's vintage television) is also a memorable part of her shows and hilarious to boot! Not quite as spellbinding as vol. one, but still great!!!! Can't wait for the collection in October!
