Surviving Co-Stars from every Judy Garland Movie - as of April 2017

by BWRocks | created - 30 Apr 2017 | updated - 8 months ago | Public

This list includes all of Judy Garland's living credited major motion picture co-stars. Over the years I have been in touch with many of these talented individuals and they should all be commended for their contributions to these movies and all of the wonderful work throughout their careers.

Although there aren't any surviving co-stars from "The Wizard of Oz", you may want to see this list: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls061321507/. The WOO list includes all of the surviving cast and crew from the classic (no one living is individually-credited and no one living had any substantial dialog). I created that list in 2016 (based on the WOO IMDb FAQs page concerning all of the surviving cast/crew that I created in 2014 which in turn is based on several of my own lists that I started compiling between 1999 and 2005) and since then it has received more than 19,000 views.
