    Oh wow! Through August, from time to time, TCM is showing Judy Garland singing the original version of, The Man That Got Away, from A Star Is Born. The scene in the film is not the original take and that's unusual for Judy Garland who was well-known as a one-take actress. I think they felt the original was a little too downbeat for the film. Look for it if you're a big Judy Garland fan.

    I had no idea there was a version other than the one I'm familiar with. You'll have to point it out to me if it plays while I'm there next.
