JUDY GARLAND: Beyond the Rainbow

Judy Garland: Beyond The Rainbow was the first comprehensive documentary on the turbulent life and brilliant career of the star of The Wizard of Oz, Meet Me In Saint Louis, and A Star Is Born, the woman often acclaimed as “the world’s greatest entertainer.”

Packed with never-before-seen film footage, Beyond The Rainbow includes clips from Garland’s performances of more than 20 American standards. This two-hour Biography special traces a turbulent career that began in vaudeville and ended in legend. It also offers an ardently straightforward take on a haunted and troubled human being who experienced failed marriages and drug addiction- all while reaching the heights of superstardom. Among the 40 original interviews are Mickey Rooney, June Allyson, Ann Miller, Jackie Cooper, Eddie Bracken, Norman Jewison, Robert Stack and Munchkin Jerry Maren.
