Judy Garland’s Ex Husband Reveals The Minnesota Actress Was Molested on the Set of Wizard Of Oz [VIDEO]
Judy Garland's husband Sid Luft wrote a memoir about her after they divorced in 1965, but he never finished it. He died in 2005, someone found it, and it's being released on March 1st called "Judy and I: My Life with Judy Garland." In the book, Sid reveals the Munchkins groped her during filming. Sid says, quote, "They thought they could get away with anything because they were so small. They would make Judy's life miserable on set by putting their hands under her dress. The men were 40 or more years old."
Judy never talked about being groped, but in an interview a few years before her death, she did say, quote, "They were little drunks . . . They got smashed every night, and they picked them up in butterfly nets." Judy died from a drug overdose in 1969. She was only 47-years-old. She was born born Frances Ethel Gumm on June 10, 1922, in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. Her parents were vaudevillians who settled in Grand Rapids to run a movie theater that featured vaudeville acts.
