... every hope of the spring: that's Judy, my Judy.
If her voice can bring...

On the day she was to prerecord “The Trolley Song”, Judy missed her morning call completely, apologetically arriving after lunch with her two little poodles in tow. Singer Margaret Whiting, a friend of Judy’s during the early 1940s, recalls, “Kay [Thompson] asked her, ‘Do you want a rehearsal?’ ‘We’ll run it down once,’ Judy agreed. They did. She was letter perfect. The music started, Judy listened attentively and then raised her head. Her eyes were shining and she sang [with] all the delicate urgency of a young girl in love and the joy of performing that was [her] hallmark. It was a perfect take… She did another, as good as the first. She collected her two poodles and went home. She had been there all of fifty minutes. And they had been waiting for five hours. But when she worked, she worked. And it worked. The results were effortless magic.”
