If Judy Garland were alive today

She'd be 89, which is certainly an age that people live to. She'd probably be in a retirement home, and visited by her children and grandchildren . What would her life had been like had she got her act together in the 1960s? Would she have hosted SNL in the 70s, or been on The Love Boat?

So Judy gets her act together at 48, successfully goes through rehab and breaks her drug habit.

She makes a triumphant return to film as Nurse Ratchet in "Cuckoo's Nest," and finally wins her Oscar. In a canny career move, she next takes the role that would have been Beatrice Straight's in "Network," and wins her second, for Supporting Actress, the next year.

She's finally able to do Broadway, and replaces Angela Lansbury in "Sweeney Todd" when Lansbury leaves - and the show runs two more years.

Sondheim, inspired, writes a new musical for her based on the life of Sarah Bernhardt. Judy triumphs and adds Tony to her growing award stash.

Then she is offered any part she wants on "The Golden Girls," but turns it down to star in "The Rink," opposite her daughter Liza. When Liza's drug habits start impacting the show, Judy personally signs her in to the Betty Ford Clinic.

The movie version of "Sarah!" is made, and Judy collects her third Oscar.

In the 1990s, Judy, a beloved show biz elder stateswoman by that point, begins a long lesbian affair with Martina Navrotilova. She openly champions gay rights.

For her work with Kosovo orphans and refugees, Judy is awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, the first American performer ever so honored.

I'm afraid that to live to age 89, Judy would have had to get her act together earlier than the 1960's. By the time she was 40 she already looked as if she'd lived a hard life. If, however, she'd gotten her act together in the 1950's, say around the time of A STAR IS BORN, then living to age 89 might have actually been a possibility. Even better, let's say she got her act together while she was at Metro and completed all those films she started--Royal Wedding, The Barkleys of Broadway, and Annie Get Your Gun--along with those she should have done, like Julie in SHOW BOAT. Then her career in the fifties might have really meant something, with lots more movie musicals at different studios, as she would have by then been a free agent. Sigh. She would have done MAME on Broadway, like Jerry Herman wanted her to, and the film version of GYPSY, perhaps with Liza as Gypsy Rose Lee. There are many delectable what-ifs to this fairy tale.

I love all Judy threads. I just do.

I wish Judy had pulled her shit together after "The Pirate" and gone into high gear, doing all three of the films she was fired from, a number of those she was being thought of to do ("Show Boat", "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" "The Belle of New York") and add to those "The Band Wagon" which would have truly made it one of the best musical films ever, and the Anne Baxter role in "All About Eve" which seems written for her.

I think she would have been magnificent in "Network", and would of course been featured in a great Woody Allen movie. Her talent was unique and elevated every project she was associated with.

I do find it hard to believe that Judy would have been able to find major-league work as the years passed.

Of course, she'd have an audience whenever she had a new project, I just think her years of mass appeal would have remained in her past.

One thing is certain. Had Judy had more survival skills and work ethic AND been able to truly kick the addictions, BROADWAY would have been her triumph post movie years. The movie musical died in the 60's.

Hell, Judy STARTED on the stage and where she was always the most at home. She would have had joined the ranks of Carol Channing, Ethel Merman and Mary Martin. SHE would have done the King and I or Hello Dolly or Mame or Follies or Sweeney Todd. Actually, Sondheim would most likely have written a show JUST FOR HER. As would Kander and Ebb and maybe even Comden and Green and Bernstein. JUDY should have been Ruth in WONDERFUL TOWN, for instance, no matter how great Roz Russell was.


Alive today? She would still be singing and probably doing some sort of television comedy (like Betty White) or a one woman show of some sort, tailored to her age. I think Judy could have still packed 'em in, if she were alive and healthy. She loved performing too much to ever give it up, I think.

R67: Judy did her best as an artist with MGM, strong husbands like Minnelli and Luft, or tough cut-throat managers like Fields and Begelman calling the shots. She had little sense of money, or how to manage her career alone.

I love Judy threads too. Well done, R26. Just for fun I will serve up something a tad different:

Following her harrowing recovery from alcohol and drugs, Judy vanishes from the public eye. A few years later her book, SHATTERED RAINBOW is published. The book is a sensation and Judy becomes highly sought after as a motivational speaker. She sells out arenas and stadiums giving inspirational speeches; her audiences are comprised of not just gay men, but whole families, the desperate, the lonely, the outcasts of society. Judy's books, tapes, and videos (yese, even her exercise videos) become a cottage industry. When THE JUDY GARLAND INSPIRATION HOUR debuts on Sunday evenings, she becomes a near cult like, televangelist figure to millions. Her popularity and wealth exceed her wildest dreams. She closes every speech with OVER THE RAINBOW, backed by a 300 voice male chorus. When the AIDS crisis hits, she instantly champions the cause, raising record shattering amounts, and building hospitals and clinics.

Despite her sobriety, however, her personal life remains turbulent. She struggles with obesity and at times balloons up to 250 pounds. A brief marriage to Marlon Brando is a disaster and is quickly annulled. Although she employs her two younger children, Lorna as a "backup singer" and Joey as a grip, she is inexplicably estranged from her oldest daughter Liza. Liza is seldom seen and is said to be living in Taos New Mexico; an occasional grainy tabloid photo of her pops up once in awhile.

Although something of an enigma, Judy for years remains a unique figure on the American landscape. She is awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor by then President Clinton, with whom she is "very close friends." She travels everywhere by private jet escorted by a crackerjack team of gay militia. She lives in a fortress like compound high in the Rocky Mountains. She is accompanied everywhere by her close personal assistant, Oprah Winfrey.

(that's the best I can do, this morning, kids--enjoy!)

by Anonymousreply 8512/17/2011

I am always surprised when people bring up Judy Garland for "Mame" or "Gypsy." To me, she was totally wrong for both roles.

Also, for many years (until Lansbury) "Gypsy" was identified with Merman. The Merm's friends, like Garland and Mary Martin, would never have played Rose while Merman was alive.

Judy was a seasoned addict by the time she was 18 years old. She already knew how to store pills for later use and was willfully abusing everything.

Given the lack of knowledge about addictive behaviors and her constant need to perform to make a living, there is not much anything could have been done to save her back then. She would have had to retire for at least five years to get well and that was impossible for her.

As concert dates dry up, Judy finds herself broke, again, and takes to staying with friends. These stays usually last a few weeks before her she is politely asked to leave.

-- After a stint at Betty Ford's, she spends most of the 1980s and 1990s on Broadway, salvaging her legacy in such terrific shows as "Sugar Babies", "Gypsy" and "Follies" (singing I'm Still Here") and working tirelessly for NY AIDS charities such as Broadway Cares.

-- In 2007, Garry Marshall makes the inspired decision to cast Judy as Lindsay Lohan's grandmother in "Georgia Rule". Garland has glorious reviews and Hollywood prepares to finally award her with the Oscar that eluded her for so many decades.
