Guiding Light's Ex-Drew Joins All-Star Cast in Lifetime Movie

Tammy Blanchard (pictured above) has created quite a little career for herself since leaving her role as Drew Jacobs on Guiding Light in 2000. She won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress as a young Judy Garland in the miniseries Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows. She then appeared in various motion pictures, including opposite Matt Damon in The Good Shepherd. She also starred in the indie movie Bella, which took top prize at the Toronto Film Festival. So what's next for Blanchard?

Tune in the Lifetime channel on Oct. 18 at 9 p.m., and you can catch Blanchard in a very important film, Living Proof, about the real-life doctor (played by Harry Connick Jr.) who helped develop a crucial breast-cancer drug that would save thousands of women.

The large cast also includes Jennifer Coolidge, Amanda Bynes, Angie Harmon, Regina King and Bernadette Peters among others.

Speaking of Judy Garland, a whole bushel full of new audio files and photographic images have been posted to the Yahoo version of The Judy Garland Experience. Among the new audio files posted are a Command Performance from Bing Crosby and Judy, Judy and John Lund in the 1953 radio adaptation of Lady In The Dark, a couple of rare recordings of Judy singing My Old Kentucky Home, a few moments with Marilyn Maye, Liza Minnelli singing three different renditions of Lucky Lady, outtakes from Judy's movie, television, and recording career, as well as her infamous appearance on the Jack Paar show form December of 1964.
Also posted are a rare duet with Vic Damone, several examples of the singing style of the teenaged Judy Garland, four versions of Singing in the rain as performed by Judy, Aretha Franklin, Debbie Reynolds, and Sammy Davis. And if that isn't enough the complete recording of Judy's very last concert has also been uploaded to the group.
