Judy, Judy, Judy

June 10, 1922 - June 22, 1969

"Always be a first rate version of yourself, instead of a second rate version of someone else."


  1. Amazing photos, thank you!

    Genius is lonely

  2. Wonderful shots -- I had never seen the middle one before.

    BTW, a friend and I have a celebration you'll appreciate, TJB. Born June 10th and passing away on June 22nd we've been celebrating "The Twelve Days Of Judy" since 1981.

    When we lived on the same coast (he's defected to LA) we'd screen "Every Sunday" on Day One, "I Could Go On Singing" on Day Twelve, and everything we could get our hands on in between.

    I can't understand why Hallmark has never seen the potential in the holiday!

    1. Ha, brilliant! It was marvelous, a few years back, when the Paley Center and the Film Society of Lincoln Center ran concurrent Judy festivals throughout June - I would attend a screening of rare Judy TV appearances at the Paley, then run up to Lincoln Center to watch "The Pirate" or "St. Louis"... good times!

    2. We must have passed each other en route -- I was doing the same thing!

  3. thank you , so much, for sharing these awesome photos of a remarkable and paradigmatic woman!
