Easter Parade (1948)

We’re off to see the Wizard, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. 
You’ll find he is a whiz of a Wiz! If ever a Wiz! there was…


There’s a number in that picture, “Friendly Star,” which I think is one of the best things she ever did . We were moving in for a giant close-up. Judy looked up with those great liquid eyes of hers and it was the most fantastic shot in the world. “Cut,” I yelled. “Will someone please hand me a towel, I’ve just come!” Now that might be thought indelicate, but Judy loved that kind of foolishness . You always had to keep her spirits high.

-Charles Walters

The Wizard of Oz, 1939.

"Most of all there was Judy Garland. Miraculous… soulful… divine … Singing these duets with her was sheer bliss.” - Barbra Streisand
