April Is Ziegfeld Month! Starring Judy Garland

Posted by

April is Ziegfeld Month!  Well, it was in 1941 and 1946.  Both Ziegfeld Girl and Ziegfeld Follies of 1946 went into general release in April, the former on April 25, 1941, and the latter in 1946.  Ziegfeld Follies of 1946 premiered in August 1945 but was then held from release until April 1946 due to cuts and the shuffling of numbers required for the revue format of the film to run smoothly.  In celebration of both films, and Judy’s roles in them, here is a gallery of ads and articles.

For details about Ziegfeld Girl with more photos and media, check out The Judy Room’s Special Spotlight Section on the film.

There is no spotlight section nor are there any pages yet devoted to Ziegfeld Follies of 1946 at The Judy Room – yet.  🙂

  1. Thank you! If you click on any image it takes you to a larger version that you can “scroll” through. There is a feature of than to “View full size” so you can see them and read them. That’s a browser feature, I’m not sure how it works on mobile devices. Give it a try! 🙂

  2. Interesting ads…too bad they’re too small to read (at least with my eyes). I’m curious who that “Ziegfeld Girl of the week” was in the closeup. I remember her closeup with Tony Martin during that section before “You Stepped Out of a Dream.” Trying to read her name. Oh, well.

    Nicely done!
