Description

Judy Garland’s genius is on full display in this musical remake telling the tale of a doomed movie star couple. A notoriously troubled production, George Cukor directed this harrowing Hollywood odyssey bolstered by a magnificent musical score by Harold Arlen and Ira Gershwin; songs include "Born in a Trunk," "The Man That Got Away," "Lose That Long Face." Co-star George Mason excels as the alcoholic husband. (1954, 176 min + intermission – restored cut, DCP)
