“Thirty years after rising to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. While preparing for the shows, Garland battles with management, reminisces with friends and adoring fans, and embarks on a whirlwind romance with soon-to-be fifth husband Mickey Deans, all while bravely struggling to overcome intensifying anxiety and physical decline.” (OCPL description)
Connecting with our 2021 book, Finding Dorothy, this film will be the basis of a Zoom discussion of Garland’s life as a budding star and her later troubles. (Renee Zellweger won the Oscar for best actress for her starring role.)
