[Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1941].

Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white double weight matte photo. Production number ink stamp on verso, fine.

The relationship between Judy Garland and her mother was truly complicated. The stage mother gave her daughter the drive and the brain wiring to be a star. In later years Judy openly expressed that she had been pushed and lost her childhood. The always demanding Ethel Gumm, who relied on her daughter for a living, was barred from MGM when Judy turned 18; the studio then took control.

A happy moment like this was taken when Ethel was allowed to visit her daughter in her dressing trailer during the filming of Ziegfeld Girl. Nearly flawless print.
