Judy Garland's most famous performance since the 1954 version of "A Star Is Born",
But her biggest film was "The Clock" (streamed on several platforms, including Criterion Channel),
in 1945, which she will soon become her husband, Vincente Minnelli.
This is the film where Minnelli unleashed the full power of his art for the first time –
And he does so thanks to Garland's own dramatic power
Garland was born on June 10, 1922,
And "The Clock," made in late 1944 when Garland was twenty,
It was the first film in which she starred but did not sing.
It is a strictly romantic drama and its drama has its roots in the main story
of a historic moment, the Second World War.
The grandeur of "The Clock" spreads in many dimensions:
As a film about life at home and in military service,
As a film in New York; and as one of the most exciting, delicate,
And in fact the most erotic novels published in the classical.
