2. the studios destroyed her. it was the studio that got her addicted to drugs--what they did

to her and rooney and other youngsters, was, and remains, criminal:

. . .



To keep up with the frantic pace of making one film after another, Garland, Rooney, and other young performers were constantly given amphetamines as well as barbiturates to take before going to bed. For Garland, this regular dose of drugs led to addiction and a lifelong struggle and contributed to her eventual demise. She later resented the hectic schedule and felt that her youth had been stolen from her by MGM. Despite successful film and recording careers, awards, critical praise and her ability to fill concert halls worldwide, she was plagued throughout her life with self-doubt and required constant reassurance that she was talented and attractive.

5. I never thought of her as a singer (stupid, I know) until I saw this



She absolutely blew my freaking mind with this performance. Honestly, I think she did it even better than Paul Robeson (no disrespect to Mr Robeson, who I consider and American HERO, intended).
