Is it possible to watch this fictional story without digressing to
thoughts about the real life story of Judy Garland? For me it isn't.
Both are permanently intertwined. And it's not just the parallel
between fiction and fact, but also the dark, brooding, melancholy mood
they engender, like ghosts calling out to us from a Hollywood that no
The film's storyline is well known. I won't belabor it here, except to
say that it communicates an honest and introspective indictment of the
entertainment industry as it once was. The story can be thought of as a
kind of archetypal Hollywood memoir, expressed as a musical.
But musicals are supposed to be upbeat, lighthearted, fun. This one

emotional pain and tragedy. Fiction mimics real life. How appropriate
that the film's signature song "The Man That Got Away" is one that is
so uncompromisingly serious, poignant, and smoldering ... a perfect

memorable. But she also demonstrates her considerable acting talent.
And the acting of other cast members is fine, especially the
performances of James Mason and Jack Carson. I do think that the film
was, and still is, too long, the result of an overly ambitious
That Judy Garland was denied the Best Actress Oscar is poignant. But
her talent was so massive, her uniqueness was so special, maybe fate
required a compensatory level of pain and tragedy, as a prerequisite of
