Summer Stock
M-G-M (1950)
Wed, Aug 8, 10:00 am - 12:15 pm
Sheffer Recital Hall, The Shedd Institute
Judy Garland plays the owner of a New England farm which entrepreneur Gene Kelly hopes to convert into a summer theatre for his troupe, of which Gloria DeHaven, Garland's sister, is a member. Aware that the farm is having financial difficulties, DeHaven talks the recalcitrant Garland into allowing the troupe to set up shop in the barn. All sorts of romances wind their way through the summer air as Kelly mounts his production. In the long-anticipated finale, Garland herself steps into the leading-lady slot vacated by her petulant sister DeHaven, and of course the show is a smash hit. The film is filled with Garland at her joyful best, performing such numbers as "Friendly Star", "If You Feel Like Singing, Sing", and her legendary specialty "Get Happy". Adding to the overall exuberance are such dependable supporting players as Eddie Bracken, Phil Silvers, Marjorie Main and Hans Conried (cast as the troupe's resident romantic baritone). --
