Vintage Photos of a 16-Year-Old Elizabeth Taylor During the Filming of ‘A Date with Judy’ (1948)

A Date with Judy is a 1948 MGM musical film starring Wallace Beery, Jane Powell, and Elizabeth Taylor. Directed by Richard Thorpe, the movie was based on the radio series of the same name.

The film was photographed in Technicolor and largely served to showcase the former child star Elizabeth Taylor, age 16 at the time. Taylor was given the full MGM glamor treatment, including specially designed gowns.

The film features the soprano singing voice of young Jane Powell, and is also a showcase for the musical performances of the Latin American singer Carmen Miranda and bandleader Xavier Cugat. In this film, she is given to humorous malapropisms such as “His bite is worse than his bark” and “Now I’m cooking with grass”. The songs “Judaline” and “It’s a Most Unusual Day” also debuted in this film.

These beautiful photos captured portrait of a 16-year-old Elizabeth Taylor during the filming of A Date with Judy in 1948.
