Trivia

This series proved to be colossally expensive, far more so than intended, and was made under very difficult circumstances, without being a ratings hit. It was described by one commentator as "the 'Cleopatra' of television". Mel Torme wrote a fairly devastating memoir of his time on the show, although it was not published until after Judy Garland's death. See more »

Bet Your Life
11 March 2005 | by tedgSee all my reviews

Talent, skill and training are one thing, Encountering someone with these qualities who is willing to commit everything in a performance is yet another thing. Judy had a TeeVee variety show like dozens of others but she was totally unlike any of them. Only she would be putting her life on the line each time, live.

I recall that rather than fight the drugs, her producers at least initially worked with them under a doctor's supervision. So what we see is a great talent on speed for possibly the 5 thousandth time and coddled so she can just focus on connecting passionately.

The sets are more abstract and the dance more modern than normal for the time (or ever, for that matter).

Ted's Evaluation -- 2 of 3: Has some interesting elements.
