Wasn't Liza phenomenal?
23 July 2007 | by beachiac-2See all my reviews

Yes, like her mom,(and me) maybe a bit too much partying, but look at that actress. She's a legacy Judy and Vincent would be proud of today, truly a legend in her own time! Her appearance on 'Criminal Intent' (here on New Zealand television- 23rd July 2007) headlined the previews of the week's coming shows! More Liza More!!!!!!!!!!!!Just found out from IMDb I need to write more for this to be accepted. OK. I became a huge Judy Garland fan after finding out my dad proposed to my mom at a Judy Garland concert on September 4th 1958, Chicago. Judy is a Goddess, and after all of the reading and research I've done;... Liza, from her appearances with Judy in concert and on television, as well as her own career, has matched her mom's charisma!!! Thanks Liza. Hope to see a lot more!!!
