Let us put the late unpleasantness behind us with a spot of Judy Garland. Here she is barely fifteen in Broadway Melody of 1938:
There. Now everything is better!

I love Judy Garland’s voice, but clearly Barnett Parker is the star in this scene. Thanks for posting this!

Kate: You’re welcome!
Julia: He is my favourite gay butler character actor of all time. And now we know he was a lollypop stealer!

Well she did hand it to him!

People should do that more often, and not just when there’s cameras around. Wouldn’t it be so much more fun if you could walk into the lobby somewhere and come across an ad-lib musical?
Here, sir, have a lillipop.

Julia: She handed it to him in a “Here, mind this” kind of a way, not in a “have my lollipop for all of time” way!
Mary Elizabeth: I’m often saddened that my life is not a musical.

I know it’s off topic (so delete if this side-tracks the Garland love) but you might also want to check out the BeBook, the e-reader I own. The screen is the same as all of the others (they’re all sourcing them from basically the same place), but they run a Linux OS distro, and work just fine.
They don’t play as well with Macs as I’d like – unmounting the device can be a bit painful, but otherwise it’s a great little device.
And it’s available in Australia – which the other two aren’t, which is why I bought one.

I know this is beside the point, but can you imagine any young star of today looking so err… well fed? An inditement on our fetish for slimness IMO.

Hey, I just wanted to post an appology — I internet-speed-read your post and completely missed the point where you said you absolutely didn’t want one. I wouldn’t have posted my comments if I had read better; I thought instead you were on the fence!
Sorry, next time Jim read better.
