"Judy Garland: By Myself" is perhaps one of the best of the "American Masters" eps I've seen yet!
6 January 2016 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched this on disc 2 of the Easter Parade DVD set. Judy Garland was always that something special-a singer who began in vaudeville as a young girl, grew up before our eyes on the M-G-M movies, then continued to triumph at concert tours. All while also suffering many off-screen troubles with her employers, husbands, and her own self-esteem which often went up and down and was related to her drug problems she went through most of her life. The failure of her TV show may have been the last straw for her but Ms. Garland was always a trouper as evidenced by all those clips of her performances. All I'll say now is this is perhaps the best documentary I've seen yet of Ms. Judy Garland. Highly recommended!
