A Brilliant Performance
22 August 2006 | by wdavew3221See all my reviews

I never thought I would be watching a 170 minute biog on Judy Garland. I doubt that I would have watched a TV biog on Judy Garland at 90 minutes! I figure there was only one Garland and any TV biog attempt would result in a cheap imitation for pure sensationalism. Glad to report that I was wrong. It's all thanks to Judy Davis' mesmerizing performance as the legendary Garland. Once on the screen, Davis left no doubt that she WAS Judy Garland and her performance never looked back from there. Miss Davis seemed to get inside Garland's skin and capture not only mannerisms an physical movements, but the spirit of this troubled legend. A brilliant performance, well supported by a fine cast, good writing (based on the book by daughter Lorna Luft) and excellent production values. Impressive also was Tammy Blanchard as the young Judy Garland. Well worth the time!
