summary: Judy Garland rose to stardom at just 20 years old as the leading lady in this all-time classic, which introduced none other than Gene Kelly and made his film debut as her co-star.

Directed by the legendary master of film musical Busby Berkeley, the film casts Gene and Judy as young vaudeville actors Harry Palmer and Jo Hayden.

The couple dreams of stardom, but the United States enters World War I and Harry receives his draft notice – leaving the pair caught between their obligation to each other’s dreams and their duty to their country.

A box office hit for producer Arthur Freed, the film is filled with song after song from the First World War, with standout highlights like “Ballin’ the Jack”, “After You’ve Gone” and of course Garland and Kelly’s great duet on the theme song .

The chemistry between Judy & Gene was natural and contagious, leading to their renewed collaboration The pirate (1947) and summer stock (1950), both also available as remastered Blu-ray releases from Warner Archive.
