Added articles; Mea culpa

Added articles; Mea culpa

Last Updated on June 14, 2020 by Celia

I didn’t realize I hadn’t made an article entitled Burt Reynolds Woofs Way Through Canine Role “All Dogs Go to Heaven’ visible to everyone in the articles gallery. It is accessible either by browsing the second page of the article gallery or by direct link here.

Also added is a letter to the editor accessible the same ways the first article is.

The writer, Roger W. Hulburd, asks a question a lot of Judith and All Dogs Go To Heaven fans ask:

Why wasn’t Judith given a final credit or mention in more All Dogs Go To Heaven articles or in the end credits of the film?

I remember producer/co-director Gary Goldman answering this question on an old Don Bluth website about 10 to 15 years ago, saying, “We were already going to make the audience cry by sending Charlie back to Heaven. We didn’t want to make it worse by reminding them of such a terrible tragedy.”

It was a devastating blow to all involved on the project:

“The studio was again taken with the young lady [Judith] and planned to not only use her extensively in publicity, but as a regular in their productions, much as Dom DeLuise had become. However, tragedy struck in July of 1988 when she was allegedly killed by her father in what newspapers referred to as an ‘Apparent Murder-Suicide.’

The studio was shocked by the events, especially Don who reportedly left for the day upon hearing the news.”

Don Bluth recalled,

“[The news] nearly paralyzed us. We couldn’t listen to the voice. Everybody would start tearing up….so it stopped everything for a while.”

Any reminder of the horror and tragedy of her passing was apparently too much for all of them.

Added TV spot commercials for The Land Before Time and All Dogs Go To Heaven

Added TV spot commercials for The Land Before Time and All Dogs Go To Heaven

Last Updated on June 8, 2020 by Celia

Hello, again, friends and fans! I’ve added 3 TV spot commercials to the The Land Before Time (1988) page and 2 to the All Dogs Go To Heaven (1989). As Don Bluth and his team were huge fans of Judith, these promotions feature her vocal talent especially.

Please consider donating to help keep this site online and bringing you everything Judith and Maria, even if it’s only $1.00:

That’s all for now. Until next time! 😀

Fatal Passions images added plus Jaws IV outtake

Fatal Passions images added plus Jaws IV outtake

Last Updated on June 7, 2020 by Celia

As promised in April, I have added image screen captures from the 1989 documentary, Fatal Passions. I cannot release the actual video because this was generously given to me by a friend of the producer from the UCLA archives for helping him find images of Judith he might be able to use in an upcoming TV program. If I were to post the video, I would violate copyright law.  The gallery page can be found in the menu under the TV show category.

I’ve added a new menu which should be easier to read and access.

It looks like this:

I discovered while crafting the settings and updating the links of this new navigation system that apparently, Destination America (1987) hasn’t been on the radar for quite some time. My bad! It’s now there under the Movies and Made for TV Movies category.

I’ve also added a rare deleted scene from Jaws IV: The Revenge  with Judith prominently in it. I took it from Youtube back in 2012 and have not seen it posted there since. With my hosting upgrade last month, I am able to host short videos and I am chancing that I might be able to keep this scene posted here.

This will probably be the last update for a while. I wanted to make this one extra special as what would have been Judith’s 42nd birthday has just passed.

For anyone who appreciates this site, please consider giving $1.00 or more via paypal. I could always use the extra help:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JUDY!

That’s all for now. Until next time. 🙂
