Perth & Kinross Libraries, 1991. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. 6" x 8.5. h/b 192 pages, condition is very good, the spine of the DJ is faded. This story of the success and failure of a family engaged in the dyeing industry is the first to take an objective look at Pullars of Perth. At the height of the Industrial Revolution, while others dreamed of a "Manchester in the North" based on linen and cotton, the Pu11ars, a family of weavers opened a small dyeing establishment in Burt's Close, Perth. In the face of innumerable difficulties they slowly expanded until by the mid-19th century "Pullars of Perth" had become a by-word for fast and efficient service, especially in dry-cleaning, not only in London, but in Paris and Berlin! This was no economic miracle. The Pullars' success was due entirely to hard work, successful planning and clever advertising. Always ready to introduce the latest types of machinery they had a reputation as good employers. Their success was reflected in their life-style and influence in Perth. Then, suddenly, things started to go sour. Challenged by a powerful Trade Union and an increasingly militant female work-force, the Pullars, despite their long experience and compassion, could not cope. Strikes and riots led to a violent ending between the family and Perth. Bill Harding has recorded, in fine detail, the trials and tribulations of one of Perth's major industries a significant part of Perth's modem history., Perth & Kinross Libraries, 1991, New York, NY Random House: Vintage Crime / Black Lizard, 1991.

On his tail are the bank robbers and the police. a man on the run from the law, and the sympathetic policeman who takes an interest in his case. A beautiful book, spare and haunting. Not a wasted word. Goodis sometimes reaches for poetry in his tales, but here he achieves it with a delicate poise.

From Publishers Weekly The last major effort of Judy Garland's career was the Judy Garland Show , which aired on CBS for 26 weeks in 1963-64. Its commercial failure has often been attributed to the star's insecurity, her problems with substance abuse, and her difficulty in dealing with the pressures of producing a weekly series. In this well-researched, objective work, TV journalist Sanders portrays Garland as a demanding individual but blames the network for the show's demise. He describes network infighting and monumental ego battles and provides almost minute-by-minute details of how each show was put together. Garland fans will appreciate Sanders's senstive yet straightforward treatment of this troubled superstar--and look forward with interest to the release of the shows on videotape. Photos not seen by PW. Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal This Garland book carves out a niche for itself in the mass of material about the singer with a specialized focus on her 1963-64 television series. Sanders, a former editor for The Hollywood Reporter , interviewed many Garland contemporaries and gleaned information from detailed fan publications to create an inside look at how a talented entertainer was forced into an inappropriate weekly format against Bonanza 's established Sunday time slot. The appendix has complete rundowns of each show: guests, songs and sketches, date taped, date aired, etc. For libraries with hard-core Garland fans or an interest in television/entertainment history. - Rebecca Sturm Kelm, Northern Kentucky Univ.

Judy Garland was at the pinnacle of her career when she signed with CBS to star in a multimillion-dollar weekly television series. The Judy Garland Show immediately became the most exciting -- and explosive -- event of the 1963-64 television season, unleashing a storm of controversy that had still not ceased at the time of publication.The Judy Garland Show seemed sabotaged from the very beginning and became a single-season casualty. CBS plunged the program into chaos -- tampering with its format, hiring and firing staff members, and refusing to move the series away from NBC's Bonanza, then the top-rated show on the air. At the same time, Garland was locked in a high-stakes power struggle among network executives, show staff members, an estranged husband, and her managers, Freddie Fields and a pre-Indecent Exposure David Begelman.Lavishly illustrated with dozens of rare, previously unpublished photographs, Rainbow's End -- written by a former television news journalist -- draws upon candid interviews with nearly one hundred key people involved in the day-to-day production of the Garland series: intimates within her personal entourage, backstage crew members, CBS insiders, choreographers, dancers, writers, producers, directors, and series regular Jerry Van Dyke, along with Norman Jewison, George Schlatter, Gary Smith, Mort Lindsey, and Bob Mackie.Many of the great talents who appeared on the show share in this book their a arts and literature,biographies,entertainers,humor and entertainment,shows,television Television, William Morrow & Co

Rainbow's End: The Judy Garland Show
The Judy Garland Show seemed sabotaged from the very beginning and became a single-season casualty. CBS plunged the program into chaos -- tampering with its format, hiring and firing staff members, and refusing to move the series away from NBC's Bonanza, then the top-rated show on the air. At the same time, Garland was locked in a high-stakes power struggle among network executives, show staff members, an estranged husband, and her managers, Freddie Fields and a pre-Indecent Exposure David Begelman.
Lavishly illustrated with dozens of rare, previously unpublished photographs, Rainbow's End -- written by a former television news journalist -- draws upon candid interviews with nearly one hundred key people involved in the day-to-day production of the Garland series: intimates within her personal entourage, backstage crew members, CBS insiders, choreographers, dancers, writers, producers, directors, and series regular Jerry Van Dyke, along with Norman Jewison, George Schlatter, Gary Smith, Mort Lindsey, and Bob Mackie.
Many of the great talents who appeared on the show share in this book their affectionate and often humorous reminiscences. Here also are Judy's three children, Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft, and Joseph Luft, who offer their loving, intimate, and uniquely insightful memories of The Judy Garland Show in rich detail for the first time.
Rainbow's End is the extraordinary on-camera and behind-the-scenes saga of the singer's last dazzling moment at the top that was The Judy Garland Show -- a so-called television "failure" that in later years was "rediscovered" and lauded with tremendous critical and popular acclaim.
