Sunday, April 23, 1961: 'Judy at Carnegie Hall'

Singer-actress Judy Garland performs live at New York's Carnegie Hall. Her performance is recorded on a double album, which reaches No. 1 on the charts and would win five Grammy Awards. For a time, the show put to rest any concerns about her ongoing health and substance-abuse problems. The crowd was adoring; The New York Times wrote: "Indeed, what actually was to have been a concert -- and was -- also turned into something not too remote from a revival meeting."
