REVIEWS:





NOTE----

I normally do not disagree very much with the reviews written by veteran New York Times film critic Bosley Crowther, but in his May 1963 review of Judy Garland's final motion picture, "I Could Go On Singing", I think Bosley misses the mark by a wide margin. Crowther pretty much hated this movie, calling it a "sappy, sentimental story", and labelling Judy's performance as "patently synthetic". But I couldn't disagree more strongly. In my opinion, Miss Garland is simply magnificent in her swan song film, and she's in fine voice too (which is another thing Crowther criticizes, claiming that Judy's "old pipes are not so melodious and vibrant as they used to be"). But those old pipes sound pretty darn good to my ears. And if anybody ever had any doubts about Judy's ability to hold her own in the acting department, all they need do is watch this scene from "I Could Go On Singing". After seeing Judy's spectacular performance in that dramatic and tearful "hospital" scene, I don't see how there could be any question as to Miss Garland's acting capabilities. That scene is one of my favorite scenes in any movie I've ever seen, and I'd also wager to say that it is one of the best dramatic performances by any actor or actress in the history of motion pictures. Judy is heartbreakingly good. -- David Von Pein
