Happy 91st Birthday Judy Garland! b. June 10th 1922
“There will never be - there aren’t adjectives enough to express in the world - how the one and only Judy is Judy, because she is the greatest.” — Mickey Rooney.
“The finest all-around performer we ever had in America was Judy Garland. There was no limit to her talent. She was the quickest, brightest person I ever worked with.” — Gene Kelly.
“Judy ranks tops—but really tops—and I think she’ll go down in history as one of the greatest performers we’ve ever had. And she was so down-to-earth; she wouldn’t even know what the phrase “Queen of the Lot” meant.” — Ann Miller.
oh my god i love this so much
In the hope that it would be a boy, [Frank and Ethel Gumm] had named the child Frank, Jr., but it was Jan Pravitz, a neighbor, who predicted as they waited, “It’s going to be a girl. She’s taking her time. She’s primping.”
And it was a girl, born at 5:30 A.M., June 10, 1922.
Yay :) I’m so glad you liked it! It’s one of my favorites of her films!
Happy Birthday Judy Garland
June 10, 1922 – June 22, 1969
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRANCES ETHEL GUMM or JUDY GARLAND | June 10th,1922 - forever
“Nobody ever says how intelligent she was, or how witty. Stories about her are frozen in a pattern, as if she had no life after ‘Over the Rainbow.’ She was the best raconteur, the funniest woman I’ve ever seen. The depth and perception she brought to A Star is Born were extraordinary… I marvel at her sensitivity.” — George Cukor on Judy Garland

Are people really sad bc Laura osnes didn’t win for Cinderella?? I mean I love that musical, but the role wasn’t very challenging.
Some diversity stats:
Half of the eight winners for performance Tonys are African Americans, including three of the four performers who won for Leading Performance. (Courtney B. Vance, Billy Porter, Patina Miller, and Cicely Tyson)
Three of the four women who won performance Tonys are sixty-four…
Judy Garland: 91 Years of Film
Note: A few shorts had to be omitted in order to make everything fit—blame Tumblr’s photo set limit.
Happy 91st birthday, Judy!
One more thing: PATINA WON!!! I’m so so happy for her, she deserves this so much and she was so excited :). When I met her I told her I hoped she’d win and she did :).
She totally stole the show for me when I saw Pippin..her voice, her acting her dancing, her enormous stage presence. Amazing.
