内容紹介

"Judy Garland on Judy Garland" is the closest we will come to experiencing and exploring the legend s planned autobiography. Collecting and presenting the most important Garland interviews and encounters that took place between 1935 and 1969, this work opens with her first radio appearance under contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and concludes with her last known interview, one taped for Radio Denmark just months before her death. What makes this collection unique is that it places Judy in the role of storyteller. She wrote a number of essays for various publications and sat for countless print, radio, and television interviews. These and other autobiographical efforts she made are proof that Judy Garland wanted her story told in her own words. Finally, 45 years after her death, here it is."

レビュー

"Who was the 'real' Judy Garland--the diminutive woman who lived a life away from the camera? "Judy Garland on Judy Garland" is an intriguing and seductive look at the icon through the eyes of the fragile woman who lived in the shadow of her own stardom. At last, we can read what Judy Garland thought of her talents, her struggles, her achievements, and her life. This is the true story of an international superstar whom the public never really knew. Flirtatious, defiant, sympathetic, contradictory, funny, sad, and charming--Judy Garland." --Michael Gregg Michaud, author of "Sal Mineo: A Biography"

"The Holy Grail for fans of Judy Garland! Randy L. Schmidt is the Indiana Jones of Garland archeology. Never before has Judy been given such a laser-focused spotlight to speak for herself--and like her greatest musical performances, she takes center stage and wows us with every phrase. Careening from the hilarious to the gut-wrenching, Judy will charm your socks off! This book is not just over the rainbow, it's out of the world!" --Sam Irvin, author of "Kay Thompson: From Funny Face to Eloise"

"A fascinating, impressively researched insight into the heart and mind of a twentieth-century icon. It reveals the true nature of Judy Garland: the incisive wit, wicked sense of humor, and self-deprecating lack of affectation. Life was not always a bowl of cherries for Judy, but she was far from the tragic figure that many bandwagon biographers have portrayed over the years. Four decades of the divine Ms. Garland, in her own words, restored to humanity at last." --Gary Horrocks, editor, "Judy Garland: A Celebration, " International Judy Garland Club

"Schmidt aptly structures the book chronologically, which by default makes it the greatest Judy Garland encyclopedia out there, in terms of search-ability, as such also becoming a fascinating chronicle of how media focus has changed throughout the years, with the first interviews being too polished for their own good, and the last ones being messier, almost morbid in a way." --PopMatters

5つ星のうち 5.0 A good addition to my Judy Garland library 2014/12/17
投稿者 B. Gould - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
An interesting book. I've read just about every biography on Judy so there isn't much that I haven't heard or read. This book put a different perspective on her life. Yes, some of the interviews during the MGM days are less than accurate, but remember the times - the studios controlled everything the stars said and did (or covered it up). Specifically, reading what she said about her mother, and knowing that Judy referred to her as the real wicked witch of the west, it is just an insight on how much of a stronghold the studios had on her, and everyone else under contract at the time. So, with that in mind, I thought it was particularly interesting and can only imagine what was going through her head as she gave these interviews.

The interviews of the 50's-60's begin to be much more candid since she wasn't under the control of a studio. I particularly love the letter she wrote to defend herself - Classic Judy Garland! By the mid-sixties she began to speak very openly and these interviews reveal the true person she was. She talks about being taken advantage of by so many people and just wanting happiness. She also talks of her children, whom she loved more than anything in the world.

Many say that Judy was tragic, but I don't think so, I think she had a hard life, some of it brought on herself, and everybody expected something from her. But she was a funny funny woman (Lucille Ball called her the funniest lady in Hollywood!) and could always laugh at herself. Of course, there are the pills and booze, but that aside, nobody worked harder, and nobody has endured as long as Judy has. She was an amazing person, all things considered and her popularity is as strong today as it was fifty, sixty, seventy years ago, and THAT is not tragic. To fans who have read everything there is to read about her, there isn't going to be anything earth-shattering, but it's all in her words, and that is fantastic! This book covers it all, and I would recommend it to any fan.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Just Enough of the Hilarious Judy to Burnish the Sappy Fan Mag Judy 2016/11/11
投稿者 987654321 - (Amazon.com)

Judy, with her enormous vocabulary and hilarious, abstract humor, is always much more entertaining than her biographers. In this book, one can read the very words that biographers have twisted to fit whatever image of Judy they were promoting . Example: Judy jokes about her fear of flying. She tells of being reassured by the airline pilots that they, too, want to be safe, and that they, too, have children for whom they are responsible. She laughs and jokes about how she doesn't care about pilots or their children - SHE wants to be safe. She jokes, "I don't care about anyone but myself!" Well, guess which part of that anecdote gets quoted again and again in biographies. "I don't care about anyone but myself!"

She was a very funny woman who turns up in the autobiographies of dozens of people, as "The funniest person I ever knew." However, this book also contains many of the humorless, old-style, fan mag, studio-PR-department-written articles. These represent the articles that Judy said were so far off the mark that she felt as though she were reading about someone besides herself. In light of Ms. Garland's exciting life, these rather dull articles are interesting only as artifacts. There are enough of the interviews from later in her life that display her fine mind and again, her humor.

We Judy fans are a breed apart. I think this is a book for us. If you haven't another book about Judy, and are curious about her life, I would recommend a biography first. However, I would never discourage anyone from reading anything. If this book appeals to you, happy reading!
5つ星のうち 4.0 The Greatest Voice of the 20th Century Finally Gets a Mic! 2015/9/4
投稿者 J. Dunaway - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Letting the Lady have her say about her life. At Last!! (It's simply too bad that Judy was 1) trapped in a time when the full truth could not be told (or even alluded to) and 2) so UN-self-aware of her own debilitation that her protestations of innocence are simply not believable. Nevertheless, the GREATEST voice of the 20th Century is given the chance to tell her tale in her own words (as culled from hundreds of interviews). While this reader found it too heavy on her breathless early press, the later material reveals the woman -- almost inadvertently -- as a fascinating raconteusse. <<For the Hard-Core Garland Fan only.>>
5つ星のうち 5.0 I like the angle of this book 2016/1/25

I like the angle of this book. Anything on Judy is wonderful to read. It is an interesting perspective to see the "public" side of her reality meaning all the pages are full of interviews, articles, et cetera. You get a feeling that she was an ambitious adorable child, and had no worries about being herself. Though some of the interviews have prefaces that suggest that she was not answering on her own behalf and may have had some lines fed to her. Overall, I think it comes across in a way that you ACTUALL feel her, and get to know her.
5つ星のうち 4.0 It is nice to have all the articles contained in this book ... 2016/9/12

It is nice to have all the articles contained in this book spanning the 30's thru the 60's. I would have liked more commentary on the articles. It's a good book for Garland admirers.
