starring
Judy Garland , James Mason
Judy Garland made a triumphant return to the screen in the central role of the singer whose fame grows as that of her actor husband declines. Mason gives a comparably fine and immensely supportive performance as the alcoholic actor. The superbly controlled direction, memorable songs and fine character performances combine to make this classic movie entertainment by and about Hollywood.
