Arcade Pub., 1999 - Biography & Autobiography - 168 pages
1 Review
Born Frances Gumm, Judy Garland lived, loved, and died in the public eye. Hers is not merely a tragic tale of chemical abuse and disastrous relationships but, first and foremost, the story of a vastly underrated and fantastically gifted performer. Garland's artistic legacy includes triumphs in film, on the stage, and in the recording studio. As an actress, she starred in a string of classic movies, including The Wizard of Oz, Meet Me in St. Louis, and A Scar Is Born. Her Palace Theater concerts in early 1950s New York set attendance records that to this day have never been broken. She danced with, among others, Mickey Rooney, Fred Astaire, and Gene Kell, was twice nominated for an Oscar, and recorded albums that continue to sell today.

Packed with 120 images chronicling her extensive movie career and rare photographs from her personal life, Judy Garland: Beyond the Rainbow is the definitive biography of one of Hollywood's most complex and adored stars.
