  1. Does anyone know if the study hall event held on Friday (6/29) was recorded, and is available to watch? I signed up to attend but unexpectedly had to take my mom to the doctor. I'd still love to watch or listen to it. Thanks! ?
  2. What was the first Judy Garland film you recall watching? What was your first impression of her? I first saw her in "The Wizard of Oz" when I was a little girl & watched it every year. I don't think I truly appreciated her talent until I got older & started watching all her other musicals. That's when I fell in love with her & especially her pairings with Gene Kelly. She had such a beautiful, strong voice, but could keep up with Gene & Fred Astaire like a pro! What films in her later career come to mind as examples of her increasing ability to capture an audience’s imagination as a storyteller when she sings a lyric? I would recommend checking out the film "The Clock" that starred her & Robert Walker I believe. It's NOT a musical, but I love the story & her acting in it. It shows how she was an excellent actress even when she wasn't singing & dancing. I also love her in "In the Good 'Ol Summertime" with Van Johnson & "Summerstock" with Gene Kelly. Just too many favorite movies to name of hers! "Wizard of Oz" was just the tip of the iceberg of her talent.
  3. I was surprised "West Side Story" & "Oklahoma" were not in the TCM airing lists!
  4. The musical I can watch over & over without tiring is "An American in Paris." First, I'm a big Gene Kelly fan so he's a huge draw for me. Second is the choreography of which he was a genius in my opinion; more of an athletic style than Fred Astaire. And third, what would a musical be without the music?! That's the only musical I own the soundtrack to on CD as I love the instrumental interludes, ballets, or whatever they're properly called. ~Diana
