A tough Judy Garland would had shove that broom up the old witches hind quarters.

Took the F3 tornado on, chucking a whisky bottle into it and say Here, have a drink.

Otto changed "may take it" to an exotic mushroom?

We're all going to have to start reading phonetically. Sheesh, auto-everything is pretty stupid.

Well, NYAH! :P

Until UHF started picking up and increasing stations, and you didn't need to pay extra for a TV set with UHF reception,  we had FOUR networks in the greater Detroit area.  With it's extremely tall broadcasting tower, Windsor, Ontario's CKLW( it'sCBC outlet) could be picked up by millions in Southeast Michigan.  

Oh, and by the way....  I'm of the opinion that Judy OWNED that song!  All other versions are left far behind in her dust. I've watched TWOO every year since the first television broadcast, and every year since she died I CRY every time she sings it.  And not ashamed to admit it.

NY Times wasn't terribly impressed and said Zellwigger plays Judy as a panicked hummingbird.

So, you are older than PBS? 😎

I saw this movie in color for the first time on CED video disc, in the early 1980s. I seem to recall it would show on a Sunday night, where my bedtime had to be extended. Don't remember what network or if it was the same each year. I don't watch when it is on TCM.

Would this be because and contrary to TCM's ad copy of "Uncut and commercial free", TCM always cuts out the famed "Jitterbug" scene and never shows that part???

(...well, they never SHOW that part anyway, RIGHT???!!!) ;)

Heh! Critics.  Go figure....

The critic in today's Detroit Free Press called Zellweger's performance "magic."  :huh:

Guess when it finally gets to OnDemand I'll have to find out for myself.  ;)
