4/26/11: Over the Rainbow

Salt Lake City, Utah – Tuesday, we're talking about Judy Garland and one performance 50 years ago. We're joined by journalist James Kaplan, whose account of Garland's 1961 Carnegie Hall concert appears in May's Vanity Fair. Kaplan says it was part morbid curiosity that packed the house that night. Garland's health and career had been destroyed by alcohol and pills, and doctors told her she would never work again. But given the stage and the spotlight, Judy Garland solidified her place in entertainment legend.

Read James Kaplan's Over the Rainbow, and Then Some! in the May issue of Vanity Fair.
