county Garland: Last News


Judy Garland gave one of her best performances in… an animated musical about a gay cat in Paris?

Welcome back to our queer film retrospective, “A Gay Old Time.” In this week’s column, we revisit Gay Purr-ee, an oft-forgotten animated musical featuring the voice of the original gay icon, Judy Garland.As we have discussed many times before in this column, queer content and representation on films in the early part of last century was often sparse, hidden, or coded.
