Resumen:

"This is the most revealing and controversial biography ever published about Judy Garland. There have been many books about her, but you have never met the real Judy until now." "In the hearts and minds of millions, she will always be Dorothy, the girl next door who traveled over the rainbow. But Judy's life behind the cameras and beyond the gaze of her fans was often filled with suffering. The ungainly daughter of mismatched parents - an ambitious mother and a gentle gay father - Frances Gumm and her sisters did the vaudeville circuit all over the country, and her voice eventually got her a movie contract. Judy Garland (as she was renamed) won fame serenading Clark Gable - then she went on to win everyone's heart in The Wizard of Oz." "Judy was MGM's greatest asset. With a voice unparalleled in show business, she hoofed with the best of them and also showed enormous talent and sensitivity as an actress. To protect their prize star the studio advised Judy to take pills - diet pills to keep her naturally heavy body in line, sleeping pills to sleep, uppers to wake her up in the artificially early movie-making mornings. Judy soon got hooked on pills and booze - a lifelong problem that eventually killed her in 1969." "Here is the first true portrait of the dark side of the Golden Age of Hollywood. Based on research from many firsthand sources, Judy Garland is the most unflinchingly detailed account to date of Judy's career ups and downs, emotional turmoil, tempestuous marriages, and severe addictions. Garland made several suicide attempts and had many abortions, notably one after an affair with a famous bisexual actor. Judy Garland reveals Judy's bisexuality. Many of her lovers were gay men, and she frequently turned to other women for romantic solace.".

"But although she had heartaches, Judy had many triumphs as well. Judy Garland has vivid behind-the-scenes accounts of the making of The Wizard of Oz, A Star Is Born, Meet Me in St. Louis, and her other film masterpieces. Judy had a dazzling concert career, and her records still brighten the lives of her admirers almost twenty-five years after her death." "Filled with fresh insights and illustrated with astonishing photographs. Judy Garland is riveting, balanced, and authoritative - unquestionably the definitive biography of the woman many consider to be the greatest entertainer of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET.
