Get Happy, Judy

Forget your troubles, come on Get Happy, you better chase all your cares away.
Sing Allellujah, come on, Get Happy,
get ready for the judgement day.

When [Judy] Garland couldn’t stop breaking into giggles at the pseudo-menacing advance of [Bert] Lahr’s Cowardly Lion, Fleming escorted her off the Yellow Brick Road, said, ‘Now darling, this is serious,’ slapped her on the cheek, then ordered, ‘Now go in there and work.’
Apparently Victor Fleming felt really terrible about slapping Judy Garland after the incident and started saying that somebody on the crew should punch him. Garland overheard this and said, “I won’t do that, but I’ll kiss your nose.” And then she did.

Oh, I may be little and I suppose I am insignificant, but I must be getting somewhere, my friends and I, or insignificant citizens like you could never be so very very worried

—Judy Garland as Susan Bradley in “The Harvey Girls” (1946). What a woman!

The man I love, the man I love is the one who said: ”Bring Manuela or I’ll put a torch to the town!”
