Renée Zellweger, 48, is currently shooting a biopic based on the final London gigs by Judy Garland, who died at 47. Now, we have our first look at Zellweger as Garland — and it ain't half bad.

Judy, Judy, Judy: Seth Sikes Returns To Feinstein's/54 Below Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2018-03-10 at 6.06.35 PMThe adorable and vocally gifted Seth Sikes is returning to Feinstein's/54 Below with The Songs That Got Away, an all-new show of Judy Garland tunes he hasn't performed in his previous tributes.

If you've never heard him work and if this concept makes you cringe, get over the hump and give him a try — he really sells the songs, and his feelings for Judy shine through.

More info after the jump ...

I'm a fan of Wayne Hollowell's fan-powered, often ghastly, always evocative celeb portraits, and he's outdone himself with his macabre “Death Becomes You” series. Above is Jayne Mansfield's final spin. Click here for Sharon Tate, Princess Diana, Marilyn Monroe, Edith Piaf, Judy Garland, Natalie Wood, Bobbi Kristina Brown and Anna Nicole Smith.

She's not half bad, though the sketch definitely has more going against it than just being too long, including the sad fact that probably 5% of the audience knows who Judy was ...

If you like retro signage and cool photos as much as I do, check out Retrologist, and start with this interesting entry on a strange survivor of the 9/11 WTC collapse: An intact newspaper from 1969 announcing the death of Judy Garland.

Judy-Garland

Judy Garland never got to write her memoirs (imagine what she'd have said!), but Randy L. Schmidt has helpfully done the next best thing in gathering all of her most important and interesting interviews and encounters from throughout her short life.

Judy Garland on Judy Garland (A Cappella/Chicago Review Press, $28.95) is an invaluable collection of first-person information on Garland, including exhaustive transcriptions of interviews.

The first exchange I saw upon opening the volume:

Judy-Garland-Gypsy-Rose-LeeGypsy Rose Lee: “I was just telling Judy Garland that I wish she wouldn't diet so much and get so thin. Not that you don't look wonderful on television, but even when you put on a little weight, your legs stay lean.”

Judy Garland: “Yes, well, I just demand that they stay lean. They have to get around so much. They're a moving target.”

Gypsy Rose Lee: “You have wonderful legs!”

Judy Garland: “Yes, well, they're straight. I think that's the thing. [Laughs] They're just legs, you know!”

That's like saying this is just a book!
