This autumn marks the 75th anniversary of Judy Garland’s feature film debut (Pigskin Parade, 1936). It was the onset of a motion picture career ultimately unsurpassed in its timeless, classic amalgam of singing, dancing, comedy, and drama. In celebration, The Film Society of Lincoln Center joins forces with The Paley Center to present screenings of much of Judy’s movie and television achievement. The Garland events in both venues will be highlighted by special introductions, discussions, and exhibitions. Don’t miss these opportunities to share what critics have ceaselessly called the “magic” of Judy Garland!
