I'm a fan of Wayne Hollowell's fan-powered, often ghastly, always evocative celeb portraits, and he's outdone himself with his macabre “Death Becomes You” series. Above is Jayne Mansfield's final spin. Click here for Sharon Tate, Princess Diana, Marilyn Monroe, Edith Piaf, Judy Garland, Natalie Wood, Bobbi Kristina Brown and Anna Nicole Smith.
Judy Garland never got to write her memoirs (imagine what she'd have said!), but Randy L. Schmidt has helpfully done the next best thing in gathering all of her most important and interesting interviews and encounters from throughout her short life.
Judy Garland on Judy Garland (A Cappella/Chicago Review Press, $28.95) is an invaluable collection of first-person information on Garland, including exhaustive transcriptions of interviews.
The first exchange I saw upon opening the volume:
Gypsy Rose Lee: “I was just telling Judy Garland that I wish she wouldn't diet so much and get so thin. Not that you don't look wonderful on television, but even when you put on a little weight, your legs stay lean.”
Judy Garland: “Yes, well, I just demand that they stay lean. They have to get around so much. They're a moving target.”
Gypsy Rose Lee: “You have wonderful legs!”
Judy Garland: “Yes, well, they're straight. I think that's the thing. [Laughs] They're just legs, you know!”
That's like saying this is just a book!

“My mom was kind of tired and she looked kind of frustrated.' I said, 'How do you feel?' She looks at us, walks over to the TV and she goes, 'How do I feel? See that hockey game? You know the puck? That's how I feel.' And she walks off. Then we started laughing.”
Um, it's not that funny!
Sounds like a can't-miss presentation, whether it turns out to be touching, fun, moving or just plain odd.
