◤ You all know how much I love Judy Garland and Gene Kelly. ◢
No, no. Don’t lie. You do know. You do.
And chances are, if you love musicals, you love them too. And you probably also lament over the fact that these two beautiful humans only made three movies together.
It may interest you to know that based on a reliable source, they were supposed to make a number of other films together, which makes my poor fangirl heart ache.
I might actually be using this information for a little… **cough** creative project in the future, but here are—reportedly—the films these two amazing beauties were supposed to work on together in addition to the ones they already made:
- Anchors Aweigh (1943) – YES. OH MY GOD, A THOUSAND TIMES YES. JUDY OPPOSITE GENE WITH FRANK SINATRA. IT JUST DOESN’T GET BETTER THAN THAT.
- Show Boat (1944 and 1945) – Two drafts of Show Boat that had Judy playing Magnolia opposite Gene or James Melton. The second version had Judy playing opposite Gene with Gloria DeHaven, Walter Houston, and Agnes Moorehead as the supporting cast.
- Take Me Out to the Ball Game (1946) – Yeah, we all know the story and we resent it. Also, Garland, Kelly, and Sinatra. UNFF.
- Cimarron (1946) - Judy and Gene in a remake of the 1931 pre-code western film; it would eventually be redone in 1960.
- Roberta (1948) – This would become the movie Lovely to Look At, but it was originally slotted to star Judy, Gene, Frank Sinatra, and Betty Garrett.
- Give a Girl a Break (1950) - A never-produced musical but come on. You know it would have been awesome.
- Brigadoon (1952) – Um. Yes, please? Because honestly, that would have been amazing.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go and have a hissy fit.
