  1. Are you familiar with her radio work? There are some amazing recordings of her in her tweens that are just unbelievable. It's still hard for me to wrap my mind around the whole little girl/mature voice thing when I listen to those. The MGM shorts that are here and there on her DVDs are also great...
  2. Maybe that's why ...silly me got confused. Thank you for the correction! It seems that I've been thanking you constantly today... I unfortunately do not own a copy of "The Harvey Girls" on DVD. I did get a job recently though, so it's only a matter of time.
  3. Kinston: -I have seen "MMiSL" and "The Harvey Girls" on TCM at least 65,342 times, and I never get tired of them. I watched them at dawn yesterday for the salute (I live on the west coast), even though I told myself I should sleep or do something else since I've seen them to death already. But nope, I sat there and watched the whole thing... -I love all the Ziegfeld tributes MGM did, especially the earlier ones. What I've never been able to find out though, is why Walter Pidgeon is always playing Flo Ziegfeld... all the way to "Funny Girl" in 1968... Geaniebeanie: -Did you mean "Mame
  4. JackBurley: "Listen Darling" (1938) July 4th; "Words and Music" (1948) August 24th (not an early film but sort of a rarity I think). Happiness abounds ! If you have the opportunity (or the money) you should check out her TV series "The Judy Garland Show" (1963) DVDs that are out. Great stuff from her later years that is almost not at all like her MGM work. I find that her television work was as fine as her film career. She had some unbelievable guest stars... Judy Garland, Ethel Merman, and Barbara Streisand belting together--or just Judy Garland, Ethel Merman, and Barbara Streisan
  5. Thank you I'm very excited to be here. Hooray Judy Garland! And I'm off to vote right now.
  6. I guess it would be appropriate to first state that I'm a 20 year old college student from Los Angeles and that I don't frequent the movie theatre much these days due to my busy schedule and lack of a job. I'm very much into golden-age MGM/WB musicals, Rosalind Russell, some film noir, and the occasional melodrama. Now that that's out of the way... It's true that many recent movies showcase special effects as their main attraction, and it's also true that classic movies have a certain depth that is mostly lost in this day and age. However, I wouldn't throw away all movies done in the last
  7. So many to choose from...! Here are mine, in no particular order: -Hedwig and the Angry Inch -Ziegfeld Girl -A Star is Born (1954, Judy Garland and James Mason) -West Side Story -Thoroughly Modern Millie -All That Jazz -Guys and Dolls Other ones that are not particularly remembered as milestones, but that I could enjoy watching multiple times are "Girl Crazy", "Summer Stock" (maybe just "Get Happy"), "The Pajama Game", "Kiss Me Kate" (or anything with Anne Miller tap dancing her brains out), "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", and "Victor/Victoria". I also prefer the original J
  8. Hi everyone, I'm Francisca and I'm new to the message board. I've been watching TCM religiously for about a year now, so I figured now would be a good time to join the message board community. Also, I would like to express my extreme joy and happiness that TCM is commemorating Judy Garland's birthday by consecutively showing a good handful of her fine films on Friday (though I did wish they would show more of her rare earlier films like "Everybody Sing" or the Mickey Rooney colab ones, rather than "Meet Me In St. Louis" and "The Harvey Girls" every 3 weeks). My question is: why are these b
