Judy Garland, perhaps best known for her moving performance as the red-slippered Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz,” would have turned 100 this year. But unfortunately, her life was cut short when she died in 1969 of an accidental barbiturate overdose. She was only 47.
One of Hollywood’s brightest stars and a singularly talented singer, Judy Garland might have seemed to have it all. Yet she was tortured by insecurity, pressure from her stage mother and the studio execs who controlled her career, depression, and a dependency on drugs and alcohol.
Join us as we discuss Judy’s early days as a child star given amphetamines for energy and weight control, her most notable successes as an actress and singer, her 5 marriages, her struggle with addiction and mental health challenges, and so much more. You won’t want to miss this look at the life and legend of the iconic Judy Garland.
