I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 Christmas Movies and specials! BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I AM HONEST! I REVIEW Christmas MOVIES AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN
The iconic special is a landmark in television and American History.
Made shortly after the assignation JFK the special was widely needed at the time. Over the years the special has become the gold standard on how to do a holiday special. This special takes place in what is suppose to be Judy's home. Her "Guest" include Jack Jones & Mel Torme. Joining in on the fun her 3 children Liza Lorna and Joe.
Judy sings her two biggest hits. :Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas).
This is a first class production. The producers were smart and made this a special that celebrated the holidays so it is 80% singing. There isn't any of the "Stupid Sketches" that would plagued later variety shows.
This is special sets the correct tone. You feel like you are an invited guest in Judy's home.
I am not sure if her children ever watch this. I think it would be difficult. Her mother however does not embarrass herself. It is also nice to see her interact with her children.
This special can be found on line. Watch it. Even if you are not a huge fan of Judy Garland you can see how she was one of the most talented performers of the 20th Century.
If you can watch it!
