This is a DVD of "The Ford Star Jubilee" special from September 24,1955 starring Judy Garland. The program is Judy's first TV special. Based on the material she did in a series of concerts at the Palace Theatre in New York. Hosted by David Wayne with Japanese performer Mitsuko Sawamura and Judy's male troupe of dancers & singers. Judy felt a lot of pressure on doing this show. She had just had a baby, and the nerves built up doing a live TV. Judy overdosed a few days before the show but managed to recover and pull herself together. Although the original program was 90 minutes, only this hour of Judy's performances survive. Missing are the comedy segments by a comedy team "The Goofers". Judy recreates the famous number from "Easter Parade", "A Couple of Swells" with David Wayne. Runs one hour. POSTAL RATE INCREASED JANUARY 17. POSTAGE OUTSIDE OF THE U.S. IS NOW $10 EXTRA. But there will be no additional postage for multiple purchases. Postage for the U.S. is $3.00.
"Hi Received the discs today, thanks. Had a quick scan and noticed there is a crackling sound all through APPLAUSE, otherwise happy with purchases. Look forward to watching them all the way through."
