Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 1, Universität Wien (Theater-, Film- und Medienwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Star Studies: Hollywoods Starsystem, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Meist wird Judy Garland nur mit ihrem berühmten Lied "Somewhere over the Rainbow" und ihrer Rolle als Dorothy im "Zauberer von Oz" assoziiert. Doch was steckte außer dem kleinen Mädchen von der Farm noch in Judy Garland? War sie Judy Garland oder wurde sie zu Judy Garland gemacht? Wie war sie wirklich, wie wurde sie dargestellt, wie wurde sie gesehen und wie stand sie in ihren Filmen und Rollen dar? Diesen Fragen möchte ich in meiner Arbeit zu Judys Images nachgehen. Im Abschnitt "Judys Starimages" gehe ich zum einen auf Judys Persönlichkeit ein und untersuche zum anderen, ob das öffentlich bekannte Persönlichkeitsbild mit ihrem natürlichen übereinstimmt. Wurde Judys Image ihrer Person gerecht oder vielmehr ihre Person dem Image angepasst? Wie sahen sie ihre Kollegen? Ich konzentriere mich hierbei vornehmlich auf Judys Zeit bei MGM. Im darauf folgenden Abschnitt befasse ich mich mit "Judys Rollenimages". In welchen Filmgenres war sie zu sehen und was für Rollen hat sie gespielt? Dabei ist anzumerken, dass ich selektiv untersuchen und nur Besonderheiten hervorheben werde. Im speziellen analysiere ich Judys Rollenimage im III. Kapitel anhand ihres erfolgreichen Comeback-Films "A Star is Born", der gewissermaßen den Höhepunkt ihrer Karriere bildete. Den Handlungsablauf setze ich als bekannt voraus. Da dieser Film auch explizit das Starwerden und Starsein in Hollywood thematisiert, eignet er sich für ein Starporträt und die Auseinandersetzung mit Hollywoods Starsystem ganz besonders, weshalb ich im Kontext des Filmes auch hierauf näher eingehen werde.

She lived at full throttle on stage, screen, and in real life, with highs that made history and lows that finally brought down the curtain at age forty-seven. Judy Garland died over thirty years ago, but no biography has so completely captured her spirit -- and demons -- until now. From her tumultuous early years as a child performer to her tragic last days, Gerald Clarke reveals the authentic Judy in a biography rich in new detail and unprecedented revelations. Based on hundreds of interviews and drawing on her own unfinished -- and unpublished -- autobiography, Get Happy presents the real Judy Garland in all her flawed glory. With the same skill, style, and storytelling flair that made his bestselling Capote a landmark literary biography, Gerald Clarke sorts through the secrets and the scandals, the legends and the lies, to create a portrait of Judy Garland as candid as it is compassionate. Here are her early years, during which her parents sowed the seeds of heartbreak and self-destruction that would plague her for decades ... the golden age of Hollywood, brought into sharp focus with cinematic urgency, from the hidden private lives of the movie world's biggest stars to the cold-eyed businessmen who controlled the machine ... and a parade of brilliant and gifted men -- lovers and artists, impresarios and crooks -- who helped her reach so many creative pinnacles yet left her hopeless and alone after each seemingly inevitable fall. Here, then, is Judy Garland in all her magic and despair: the woman, the star, the legend, in a riveting saga of tragedy, resurrection, and genius. From the Trade Paperback edition.

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.

Edwards’s biography presents a complete picture of the late actress—and not just the boozing, drug-addicted caricature of a woman central to lesser biographies. We learn, for example, that Garland saw it as her duty to provide for her family financially, a generosity that her mother Ethel exploited with disastrous results. Above all, Judy Garland sought to please, whether it was an audience or a studio head, and therein lies her powerful and heartbreaking story.

This unique biography of the superstar born Frances Ethel Gumm in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, is based on talks with people who actually knew her – from the 90-something woman in Grand Rapids who used to babysit the star to the producers, nightclub owners, musicians and friends who experienced all the problems Judy had, as well as her great successes.We hear how she was shunned by local people when she made her only visit back to her birthplace by people who considered her a Jezebel; how her father was shunted out of town because he was gay; and how she was overworked while making The Wizard of Oz. The man who established the first Judy Garland fan club tells how he reluctantly walked out of one of her performances because she was so bad.Stevie Phillips, the 'carer' imposed by Judy's agents describes her as a 'train wreck' and the son of the man who employed her at New York's biggest night club describes how she let him down and failed to appear for shows.In Hollywood, we see that the son of the doctor who was her father's friend went to MGM asking them to cancel a contract because the work pressure was too hard. But then we also hear how she was sacked from Annie Get Your Gun and went through the MGM corridors in war paint and carrying her tomahawk 'looking for someone to scalp' as TV-producer George Slaughter put it.This is a bitter-sweet story: sad and funny and very human. Don’t look for star names in this book – they are not there. These are personal stories from the sort of people few biographers have bothered to talk to, but who provide the best and the truest tales.

Sid ‘One-Punch’ Luft, amateur-boxer, producer and Judy Garland’s third husband was the one man in her life who stuck around, helping her achieve a meteoric comeback in the 1960s. It was Luft who reversed the fortunes of an apparently faded career, seeing her triumph at Carnegie Hall, in ‘A Star Is Born’ and ‘The Judy Garland Show’. Previously unpublished, Sid Luft’s intimate autobiography tells their story in hard-boiled yet elegant prose. It begins on a fateful night in New York City when the not-quite-divorced Judy and the not-quite-divorced Sid meet at Billy Reed’s Little Club. A straight-talking sharp shooter, Sid fell for Judy hard and fast and the romance persisted through separations, reconciliations, and later divorce. However, her drug dependencies and suicidal tendencies put a tremendous strain on the relationship. Sid did not complete his memoir; it ended in 1960 after Judy hired David Begelman and Freddie Fields to manage her career. But Randy L. Schmidt, acclaimed editor of Judy Garland on Judy Garland, seamlessly pieced together the final section of the book from extensive interviews with Sid, most previously unpublished. Despite everything, Sid never stopped loving Judy and never forgave himself for not being able to save her from the demons that ultimately drove her to an early death at age forty-seven in 1969. Sid served as chief conservator of the Garland legacy until his death at the age of eighty-nine in 2005. This is his testament to the love of his life. ‘In prose so brassy that it bruises the sensibilities, Luft… illuminates the dark side of life in the spotlight and dispels any sentimental illusions about the glories of show business in Hollywood’s classic age.’ - The New Yorker
