Judy Garland - The Man That Got Away (A Star Is Born, 1954)



Every time I watch this I get chills. I knew this rendition, first, as a child, when I would spend my chores money on 2nd hand records of musical comedies and movies such as this. Powerful as the performance is as a recording, nothing could prepare me for the power evident in the cinematic presentation. The power, passion, and poignancy of that singing voice has never been equaled.
