Judy Garland..........

Now did that subject heading get you interested or what........... what a remarkable lady.. what a talented singer.. and what do I know other than I saw a few films and the "Boy from Oz"

But as for stamps, she was recognised on a US issue - which was another MS I got while I was in the US - Here is the right hand side of the sheet.. of 20 stamps..... a lovely sheet in my view.
I will treasure this one... I thought it was interesting to read how many years ago that she won an Academy Award "for her outstanding performance as a screen juvenile" for her performances in the 1939 films Babes in Arms and The Wizard of Oz.

"Over the Rainbow" is one of the many classic songs she sang. This "Judy Garland" stamp image is based on a publicity photo from A Star is Born, and the side of the stamp sheet depicts her as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.

OK.. so.... in what year did she get the Academy Award ?

I expect at least 100 replies from my US readers alone.... dream on you say !!! ... but someone .. lets say the 4th correct entry, will win a FDC of my choice.. usual rules.. email me at and you must include your mailing address
sorry but I am not giving away this MS.. bad sport that I am, anyway, I look forward to hearing from you....

enjoy your stamps.. how can you not, I often wonder.... Michael

Speaking of Judy Garland, there is an exciting new group on Yahoo called The Judy Garland Experience. The group has the largest and most diverse membership of all the Garland groups and fan clubs, and we are always having lively discussions on a variety of topics. We also have amazing photo albums filled with never before seen photo's of Judy.
The group's audio files are the rarest on the Web and are constantly changing, but if you check in right now you can hear Judy's complete performance on The Merv Griffin Show where she sings, dances, trades quips with Totie Fields, and more. We are also featuring a never released Judy concert that was recorded in Canada in 1965, an ultra rare performance featuring Judy and Helen Forrest on The Dick Haymes Show, and dozens of other aural odds and ends that will have Garland aficianado's drooling. We even have an unreleased concert from Al Green. Why are we featuring an unreleased Al Green concert you ask, you will just have to visit The Judy Garland Experience to find out! But be forwarned, once you visit our little Judyville you may never want to leave.
