Judy Garland & The Wizard of Oz
by Betty Jo Tucker

Movie Addict Headquarters is off to see the Wizard on Tuesday, June 4!  In this fun episode, Lorna Luft talks about Judy Garland’s role as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. She also discusses what it’s like to be the daughter of her famous mom.

Lorna is an accomplished performer in her own right. She’s won acclaim on stage, film and television. Plus, she’s also a best-selling author, recording artist and Emmy-nominated producer. Her book, Me and My Shadows: Living with the Legacy of Judy Garland, was optioned by ABC-TV and turned into a riveting miniseries starring Judy Davis. Lorna served as co-executive producer on that project, which won 5 Emmy Awards.

It’s also important to mention Lorna’s live theater experience as the Wicked Witch of the West in the UK production of The Wizard of Oz. She gives listeners an amusing hint of what that involves during her interview clips.

Although released way back in 1939, The Wizard of Oz still captivates audiences throughout the world. It’s a timeless gem, and Garland’s heart-tugging performance emerged as one of the film’s highlights. Her beautiful rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” will never grow old. Listeners get to hear that haunting tune again by tuning into this episode.

“Judy Garland & The Wizard of Oz” airs on BlogTalkRadio at 4 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, June 4, 2019. An archives segment will also be available.

HOST: Betty Jo Tucker
