    • You’re welcome!
      “As for my feelings toward “Over the Rainbow”, it’s become part of my life. It is so symbolic of all my dreams and wishes that I’m sure that’s why people sometimes get tears in their eyes when they hear it.”

    • Most welcome! Hold, please for Judy quote:
      “Whenever we’d do that little dance up the Yellow Brick Road, I was supposed to be with them – and they’d shut me out! They would close in, the three of them, and I would be in back of them, dancing. So director Victor Fleming – who was a darling man, always up on a boom – would say, ‘Hold it! You three dirty hams! Let that little girl in there! Let her in there!'”

    • I think it’s going to be a very staid broadcast, but then it’s never rowdy — although it might be more fun if it was.
      “Hollywood is a strange place if you’re in trouble. Everybody thinks it’s contagious.” Judy

    Nice of Liza to come as the Wicked Witch. I did wonder why her face wasn’t green though. Odd… 😉
    The Wizard of Oz is great. Obviously. Judy as Dorothy Gale singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow is one of the loveliest, most heartbreaking things ever (“…why, oh, why can’t I?”) then there’s Glinda, the Munchkins (“We represent the Lollipop Guild, the Lollipop Guild!”), Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, “Follow the Yellow Brick Road”, Flying Monkeys, “I’m melting, I’m meltiiing!”, ruby slippers… Who could resist?! Sublime.
