Judy, Judy, Judy! Everyone knows her from The Wizard of Oz, but I also love the rest of her musicals, which are often in historical settings. She was a gloriously bright light of Hollywood’s golden age, and she burned out relatively fast in the harsh studio system. But Judy Garland left us her amazing performances, and that’s why she’s my Woman Crush Wednesday.
