The Man That Got Away

To find yourself jilted is a blow to your pride. Do your best
to forget it and if you don't succeed, at least pretend to.”

(15 Jan 1622 - 17 Feb 1673)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Did you ever notice how sometimes a song gets into your head and just won't go away? As it has done for the last several years, this one has been playing reruns in my head for several days now. Maybe it's a seasonal thing ....

BONUS #1 - - The Man That Got Away - clip of Judy Garland from "A Star Is Born" (1954)

BONUS #2 - - The Man That Got Away - Judy Garland, London Palladium, 1964


"The Man that Got Away" is a popular song, published in 1953 and was written for the 1954 version of the movie A Star Is Born. The music was written by Harold Arlen, and the lyrics by Ira Gershwin. In 1955 it was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song.[1]

Arlen had originally collaborated with Johnny Mercer, who wrote lyrics that began "I've seen Sequoia, it's really very pretty, the art of Goya, and Rockefeller City, but since I saw you, I can't believe my eyes."[2] The Gershwin Collection at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin contains a typescript draft of the lyrics with Ira Gershwin's handwritten changes.

The best-known recording of this song was made by Judy Garland with the Warner Bros. orchestra under the direction of Ray Heindorf using an arrangement by Skip Martin. Judy's performance of the song in A Star is Born is unusual for being filmed in one continuous shot. In the finished take, Garland (as Esther Blodgett) performs the song during an after hours rehearsal session in a smoky nightclub.

"The Man That Got Away" is arguably the most important single musical sequence in the entire film. As one of the first things filmed for the movie, it was photographed in three different costumes on three different occasions, in over forty different partial or complete takes. Judy Garland prerecorded the song on September 3, 1953 and the number was first filmed on Wednesday, October 21, 1953...

   Actually, I was feeling as well as I ever do when your gifts and card arrived and while our 50-Year Reunion was happening; I just have "invalided-out" or shall we say, I have attained emeritus standing. I wasn't expecting to reach this point for another ten or twelve years, but there ya' go.

   Now it seems as though I may actually be catching some rude germ or other, but I'm trying to head it off at the pass!  


  From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 11/02/15 - "LIBERATED MEN":

When everybody on earth was dead and waiting to enter Heaven, God appeared and said, “I want the men to make two lines: One line for the men who were true heads of their household, and the other line for the men who were dominated by their women. I want all the women to report to St. Peter.”

Soon, the women were gone, and there were two lines of men. The line of the men who were dominated by their wives was hundreds of miles long and in the line of men who truly were heads of their household, there was only one man.

God said to the long line, “You men should be ashamed of yourselves; I created you to be the head of your household! You have been disobedient and have not fulfilled your purpose! Of all of you, only one obeyed. Learn from him.”

God turned to the one man, “How did you manage to be the only one in this line?”

The man replied, “This is where my wife told me to stand.”

     Thanks, Ruthie!

    From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 11/03/15:

The Man That Got Away

Music by Harold Arlen (15 Feb 1905 – 23 Apr 1986) for A Star Is Born (1954)

Lyrics by Ira Gershwin (06 Dec 1896 – 17 Aug 1983)

Recorded by Judy Garland
(10 June 1922 – 22 June 1969), 1953

The night is bitter,
The stars have lost their glitter;
The winds grow colder
And suddenly you're older -
And all because of the man that got away. No more his eager call,
The writing's on the wall;
The dreams you dreamed have all
Gone astray.

The man that won you
Has gone off and undone you.
That great beginning
Has seen the final inning.
Don't know what happened. It's all a crazy game!

No more that all-time thrill,
For you've been through the mill -
And never a new love will
Be the same.

Good riddance, good-bye!
Ev'ry trick of his you're on to.
But, fools will be fools -
And where's he gone to?

The road gets rougher,
It's lonelier and tougher.
With hope you burn up -
Tomorrow he may turn up.
There's just no letup the live-long night and day!

Ever since this world began
There is nothing sadder than
A one-man woman looking for
The man that got away...
The man that got away.
