Not much posting going around in these parts!
I just wanted to tell all of you to watch the Emmy's this Sunday - the By Myself: Judy Garland American Master's Documentary is up for several awards! Hope that it wins all that it's nominated for!
Also - Judgement at Nuremberg came out on DVD September 7th. You can find it at most stores like Best Buy, Barnes & Noble, Borders, and any other place like that. I got my copy at Best Buy. It's not a waste of money - only $9.99. And who would ever think that a Judy movie on DVD is a waste of money, anyway? ;)
Also - October 12th is the release for That's Entertainment! DVDs. All three of these classics are available on DVD separately for $19.97 ($13.98 if you order them on amazon.com) or all together WITH a 4th DVD with tons of extras (which is only available with the box set) for $49.92 (or $34.94 if you order it from amazon.com). You can pre-order these on amazon.com, and they will mail them to you as soon as they get them in stock (October 12). If you haven't seen these wonderful movies - you won't want to miss out! I have all of them on tape, and they come on TCM quite often. They are all documentary-type movies with clips from classic MGM films, and with stars which were alive at the time/still are alive telling stories of good ol' MGM. Lots of Judy in each one! Appearances include June Allyson, Donald O'Connor, Lena Horne, Mickey Rooney, Liza Minnelli, Esther Williams, Debbie Reynolds, and dozens of others! Each film is about 2 1/2 hours long.

Also, on October 12, Warner Bros. Home Video will be releasing these two pack DVD sets: For Me and My Gal/In The Good Old Summertime AND The Wizard of Oz/Ziegfeld Girl. If you don't already have these DVDs, here's a chance to get them in packs for a special price.
ALSO - for those who are also interested in Liza, or those who would love to see pictures of Judy and Liza together, there is a new book coming out in November called The Liza Minnelli Scrapbook by Scott Schechter. Scott is well-known for being a Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli historian, and has worked on many projects, including many Judy and Liza CDs, Judy DVDs, and has appeared on television on several occasions. He also runs "Garland's For Judy", a magazine devoted to Judy that comes out twice a year. AND - he's written a book about Judy called Judy Garland Day-By-Day Chronical of a Legend, which came out in 2002. You can see samples from Scott's Judy book by going to this link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0815412053/ref=sib_dp_pt/102-2204691-0204901#reader-link
