Stunning Judy Garland Autographed Oversized Photo

This absolutely exquisite oversize, double weight portrait shows Judy Garland wearing an Esther Blodgett costume sweater from Warner Bros.’ “A Star is Born” (1954). Britannic Auctions sold this photo for $930.

Judy Garland signed and inscribed the photo to the wife of Warner Brothers publicity man Robert Graham Wahn, who ironically was also named Judy, making this a very unique inscription: “To Judy – with love from Judy Garland”.

“A Star is Born”

The production of Judy Garland’s “A Star is Born” in 1954 was a monumental undertaking.

Directed by George Cukor, it featured elaborate sets, intricate costumes, and a groundbreaking soundtrack. Despite initial setbacks, including Garland’s health issues, the film became a critical and commercial success, earning several Academy Award nominations.

The songs from the musical are iconic classics that have stood the test of time. Composed by Harold Arlen and Ira Gershwin, they include memorable tunes like “The Man That Got Away” and “Born in a Trunk.”

Esther Blodgett’s costumes in “A Star is Born” play a crucial role in her transformation from aspiring singer to a Hollywood star.

Initially portrayed as a small-town girl with modest attire, Esther undergoes a stunning metamorphosis as she ascends to fame. Her costumes become increasingly glamorous and extravagant, reflecting her newfound success and confidence. This visual evolution parallels Esther’s journey of self-discovery and empowerment as she navigates the highs and lows of stardom.
