Présentation de l'éditeur

This day-by-day account of the legend's life—the first of its kind—succeeds in the daunting task of tracking Judy's myriad professional pursuits, the personal crises she triumphed over, and her many accomplishments.
Lavishly illustrated with eighty rare photos, this volume contains new information to enthrall even the most knowledgeable Garland fan. For those just encountering Judy, this book provides the perfect introduction, an engrossing narrative bursting with information: her performance dates, concert set lists, and recording session schedules; the evolving critical reception to her work; the many celebrities that came into contact with and adored Judy, from the Beatles to Elvis to Sinatra; her filming itineraries and guest appearances; excerpts from rare interviews and press conferences; and much more.
Here is Judy Garland as never viewed before, in a way that allows readers to see her whole life on a daily basis and come to their own conclusion about what her life was really about. They will encounter a survivor, parent, friend, and one of the greatest entertainers the world has ever known, who overcame one obstacle after another in order to devote forty-five of her forty-seven years to delighting her fans. From her debut performance as a Gumm Sister at age two to her final day, Judy Garland is the definitive chronicle of this remarkable icon.

Dans ce gros livre de 438 pages, l'auteur propose de suivre Judy Garland année après année, mois après mois, souvent même jour après jour, de juin 1922 à juin 1969, en s'attachant essentiellement à sa vie professionnelle. Il faut savoir que Judy Garland a fait ses débuts "officiels" sur scène alors qu'elle n'avait que deux ans et demi et se nommait encore Frances Gumm, et qu'elle a pratiquement toujours travaillé.
Les années MGM sont particulièrement édifiantes et on se rend compte en observant son planning quotidien que la vie d'une star sous contrat à cette époque n'était pas particulièrement enviable. On parcourt ainsi toute la carrière de Judy Garland: les tournages de films, les concerts, les enregistrements en studio, les premières, les shows TV, et de nombreuses informations sont relayées par des critiques de l'époque ou des témoignages.
Ce livre représente un travail monumental d'une précision étonnante; il s'adresse bien évidemment aux fans qui y trouveront mille renseignements passionnants et inespérés sur la vie professionnelle de la grande Judy Garland, en ne donnant que le strict nécessaire concernant sa vie privée.
Cet ouvrage remarquable est illustré de 80 photos noir et blanc très rares et même souvent inédites et il est complété par deux index qui permettent de retrouver n'importe quelle information, le 1er index étant exclusivement consacré aux chansons interprétées par Judy Garland tout on long de sa carrière.

This book was never meant to be a "biography" in the tradional sense - nor is it meant to be an examination of the Garland psyche.
It is simply what the title says it is: A Day by Day chronicle of Judy's life. Everyone knows she was a workhorse - especially at MGM. This book shows that and more.
No, this book is not for the "new to Garland" people who want to read a bio about her - it's more for people who enjoy perusing through raw data and seeing not just how much Judy worked, but also just how "anal retentive" MGM was in keeping track of her every move. ESPECIALLY when she was labeled as "difficult."
It's great to read the long entries that have details about various milestones in her life, and it's also a great "quick reference" guide for those fans who want to find data easily (and don't have to wade through some biographer's personal opinions about that data).
If you don't like reading that she was late on a particular day while filming "Meet Me In St. Louis" - then fine - skim over than and concentrate on the lengthy and detailed entries.
I for one am glad Scott put this book out - and from what I have read, it could have been several hundred pages more (too bad it isn't). Scott has put the data out there for all to see and form their own opinion on Judy's career.
Forget all of the nasty posts/reviews - this is simply a record of her life/career in (as stated above) raw data form.
A fun book for Garland fans and fans of old Hollywood. So, put on one of the new CD's of Garlands Capitol albums and page through this book and simply have fun!
Thanks Scott for putting all of this data in one easy reference point!

This book is a must-have for Judy fans. That's a given.

But be careful about a quick dismissive flip through the pages. This is, among other great things, a key reference book for collectors.

If you want to know about a particular song Judy sang and whether a recording exists, the Song Index in this book will lead you to the answer.

If you want to know if a particular radio show or concert was recorded, this book will tell you where to find it or will confirm that it exists in private collections.

If you want to know when and where Judy sang with Vic Damone, for instance, this book will lead you to the time, the place and provide info. on available recordings.

A keepsake volume and handy reference tool for the very serious Judy collector.

HASH(0x930031a4) étoiles sur 5 Amazing Chronicle!! 20 mai 2002
Par wdon - Publié sur

I wasn't sure what to make of this when I bought it......a day by day chronicle. However, I was soon caught up and totally fascinated. Not only is this an important document on Judy Garland but it is an important document on stardom during the "Golden Age??!!" of Hollywood. Good Grief, they most certainly earned their keep. That was a tough, tough business.
It's interesting to note that as Judy became more popular MGM did seem to make an effort to make her call times on pictures a little later, realizing the early morning was not her best time.
I had to keep wondering at how very confusing it must have been to be tying up lose ends on one movie while beginning production on another adding to the initial confusion of the make-believe world of making movies. I got tired just reading about her day to day existence. I can't imagine what it must have been like to live such an existence and I can't imagine trading so much of myself for anything. Those that made it as "stars" must have had a deep, deep need to be able to sell themselves body and soul to their studios to be repaid in fame. I don't can think about this and think about it but you have to wonder how so many actually survived this gruelling situation. It most definitely is to Judy's credit she attained the quality as well as the amount of work she produced in such a short lifetime.
This book offers a real understanding of the star system as well as Judy Garland's position in it and once and for all de-glamorizes the whole thing. Fascinating!

HASH(0x92c346f0) étoiles sur 5 Wow! What a great Book! 25 mai 2002
Par JudyFan - Publié sur

I loved this book. I have been a Garland fan all of my life. I have read almost everything written about her. Reading this book I found out things I didn't know. It's so interesting to follow Judy's path from great star to a woman that must live from friend to friend. At one point she even sang for $100 a night. I was totaly taken with this book. I couldn't help but be left with a profound sadness after I had finished. Judy was loved but just never was able to see it. Even though I knew she was going to die at the end I kept hoping she would get it together and come out on top. If you love Judy READ this book.

HASH(0x929b2c24) étoiles sur 5 A Worthwhile Reference 7 juin 2002
Par Steven R. Schreibman - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I agree with the other reviewers that Garland "deserves better," that this book lacks "visual depth" and so forth, but you have to hand it to Schecter for having the tenacity to gather as much a working "diary" of Judy than anything else ever assembled. Like all such day-by-day chronicles, this one is not literature, and at times can be boring. But you have to look at the whole--the woman WORKED. And NEVER STOPPED. And now you know why.
Yes, you can glean tidbits of gossip--my favorite was the $788 check Judy wrote to the local liquor store--but you can't beat this book's detail of her business dealings, or the excavation of Judy's very first movie still, published here, when she was a 7-year-old extra in a kiddie short.
Go ahead and hurl over this if you want. For Judy-philes, or anyone who wants to add texture to their knowledge of showbiz and the relentless effort it takes to stay on top, this "Judy Garland" deserves a space on your shelf.
