Wonder about Judy
I have just finished watching this film again and each time I see it I can't help but wonder what was going through Judy's mind as she made this film. As someone who's own life was full of such emotional turmoil and psychological damage, did working with these children make her forget her own troubles and turmoils and realize how truly blessed she was in so many ways?
I wish that I could have been on the set to see how she interacted with these children and whether or not she sang for them, comforted them, etc., I also wonder how many of them saw her in the Wizard of Oz and whether or not they realized who she really was.
All in all I feel the movie was ahead of its time and is a good example of the hot button or taboo subjects that Hollywood started to tackle at this time.
Definitely one of Judy's best films.
Any other thoughts?
I may as well have property of M.G.M. tattooed on my backside!
