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!

Judy, Judy, Judy: Joey Luft Remembers Mama Comments (0)

Joey-Luft

From July 11 through July 13, Joey Luft (b. March 29, 1955) is appearing at an evening of songs and stories dedicated to and all about his late mom, Judy Garland (June 10, 1922—June 22, 1969).

If you didn't know he could sing, he can't—the show will include re-mastered Judy performances and a Q&A from Luft.

Judy-Joey-LornaOne story he previewed for the L.A. Times involves watching, of all things, a hockey game with his mom and his sister Lorna Luft (b. November 21, 1952) in bed one day:

“My mom was kind of tired and she looked kind of frustrated.' I said, 'How do you feel?' She looks at us, walks over to the TV and she goes, 'How do I feel? See that hockey game? You know the puck? That's how I feel.' And she walks off. Then we started laughing.”

Um, it's not that funny!

Sounds like a can't-miss presentation, whether it turns out to be touching, fun, moving or just plain odd.
