Happy 90th Birthday, Judy Garland!
In honor of what would have been Judy Garland's 90th birthday, I'm posting a few seldom seen shots of her from 1965.
Videotaped on July 9, 1965 at NBC Television Studios in Burbank, "The Andy Williams Show" had Judy opening the show with "On A Wonderful Day Like Today" (with Andy).
In addition, she sang "Get Happy," and a medley with Williams consisting of "Why Don't We Do This More Often?", "On The Atchison, Topeka, And The Santa Fe," "Over The Rainbow," "Rock-A-Bye Your Baby," "You Made Me Love You," and "The Trolley Song." This episode aired on September 20, 1965. Here's the Trolley Song portion of the medley:
Guest star David McCallum, enjoying his fame from "Man From UNCLE" (also an NBC series), attempts to branch out as a song-and-dance man.
Can you imagine being in the audience for this?
The minimalist sets are very cool; yes, even thrift can be chic! As I so often say, less is more.
