Today we celebrate Judy’s life and everything she brought into our lives. It’s not a day to be sad. It’s a day to honor her amazing existence and thank her for memories.
No tears today.
Let June 22nd be the day in which we’re happy because she lived.
Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me
*impatiently waits for the Voodoo footage to be found*
Day twelve ::: Judy & GeneChemistry. That’s the best word to define Judy Garland and Gene Kelly together on the screen.Kelly’s first movie ever was For Me And My Gal, in 1942, in which he performed alongside Judy. He often said in interviews that she was wonderful to him, and taught him a lot (even though she was only 20 when they made the movie, she had starred in more than 10 films already).Their love for each other is evident in all three movies they made together. No, they were never romantically involved (we wish), but they had a relationship of mutual respect and admiration.Recently, Gene’s widow, Patricia, talked about his feelings for Judy in a interview. Here’s what she said:"He had a real love for Judy Garland and he thought she was the sexiest woman in Hollywood. He thought she was the quickest study, just a brilliant woman, she could look at anything and absorb it. (…) There’s something between them that is just really magic and probably not to be seen again."
"Oh thank you ever so much! I had a wonderful day!"
Everything is Judy Garland and nothing hurts.
How did we never think of this? It’s Judy’s birthday - JU-day. The 10th of June will now forever (at least in my book) be known as such.
Happy Juday everyone!
