Ziegfeld Girl

Original Theatrical Date: April 25, 1941

Judy Garland, Hedy Lamar and Lana Turner—three of the most glamorous leading ladies of the Golden Age of Hollywood—star with Jimmy Stewart as young women, each chosen for a life of fame on stage as a Ziegfeld Girl.

Susan Gallagher (Academy Award winner Garland—The Wizard of Oz, A Star is Born) leaves her vaudevillian father to climb the ladder of stardom; Sheila Regan (Turner—The Postman Always Rings Twice) drops her loyal beau, Gilbert Young (Academy Award winner Stewart—It's a Wonderful Life, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington) for socialite Geoffrey Collins (Ian Hunter—Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), and Young resorts to bootlegging to earn the money to win Regan back; and the exotic Sandra Kolter (Lamar—Tortilla Flat, Samson and Delilah) nearly destroys her marriage with her struggling violinist husband (Philip Dorn—I Remember Mama). Now, as part of the most glamorous show ever staged, these ladies have attained their dreams . . . but will they find happiness in their new lives?

Featuring the songs "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows" and "Caribbean Love Song."
