it’s hard when one knows the history and What Happened Next but gosh, doesn’t Judy (judy, judy) look overwhelmed and bamboozled.

According to Sid Luft: “When he met Judy on the rebound in 1950, she had just been let go by MGM and was, in her own words, “on the slippery slope to a fadeout”. Suffering from drug addiction and a chronic sense of insecurity, she was in danger of becoming a has-been at 28.”
I just love these photos!!
I had the privilege once of talking at some length to Gene Allen, who designed A Star is Born, this is one of his favorite movies.
