Turner Classic Movies celebrates what would have been the 90th birthday of screen legend Judy Garland on June 10 with 24 hours of Garland movie musicals. TCM host Robert Osborne and historian John Fricke, author of "The Wizard of Oz and Judy Garland," will emcee proceedings, which begin at 3 a.m PDT with the 1938 musical "Everybody Sing," which also stars Fanny Brice. Other films include three films Garland made with Mickey Rooney — 1938's "Love Finds Andy Hardy," 1940's "Strike Up the Band" and 1943's "Girl Crazy." Of course, no Garland festival would be complete without her best-loved movie, 1939's "The Wizard of Oz," as well as 1944's "Meet Me in St. Louis," 1954's "A Star Is Born" — for which she earned a best actress Oscar nomination — and 1948's "Easter Parade" with Fred Astaire.
