When shooting on I Could Go On Singing began in May 1st, 1962 both Judy Garland and co-star Dirk Bogarde were unhappy with the scripts. They would end up rewriting many of their scenes themselves. One notable scene which Garland and Bogarde rewrote was the hospital scene where Garland’s character never wants to return to the theatre and must be persuaded by Bogarde’s character. When the film was being shot the film’s director, Ronald Neame said he realized that Judy Garland was no longer acting, they were shooting the real Judy Garland.
