the godmama of all tragic singers, played Dorothy in 'Wizard of Oz', gave birth to Liza Minnelli, Od'd at the age of 47, and perennial icon to the gays.
Damn, girl, don't go messing up your career on those uppers or you'll end up over the rainbow like Judy Garland.
Judy Garland, AKA Miss Show Biz, was a wonderfully beautiful actress and singer from the 1930s to the late 1960s, when she unexpectedly died a premature death caused by her drug usage. She's the woman who made "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" the Christmas standard it is today, and sung "Over the Rainbow" in The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.
Judy Garland ended up playing the role of seventeen-year-old Esther Smith in the MGM music Meet Me In St. Louis, a role she originally didn't want because she feared it would sey her career back instead of forward.
