Judy Garland was born Frances Ethel Gumm on June 10, 1922 and died of an accidental drug overdose on June 22, 1969 at the age of 47. The drug was actually a prescription for c…irrhosis
Her favorite drink was black tea and vodka
It seems her favorites were the barbiturates such as seconal and nembutal. Those were replace by what we have today called benzodiazepine; valium, ativan xanax and klonopin. … She started taking drugs early in childhood to sleep, for anxiety and stimulants to keep working. She seemed like a nervous woman and probably had terrible insomnia later in life which was why she had such a problem with the sedatives. From accounts in biographies about her it seems she also drank a lot and likely used alcohol to get high and the drugs to calm her nerves. It was likely the combination of things that resulted in her death. They didn't have much in the way of treating addiction back in her day. She was one of the most talented people ever and should have been very rich but she died broke which was heartbreaking. She had a hard life but brought so much good to the world through her movies and singing. She will always be loved.
No. "Judy Garland" was, in effect a stage name. Her birth name was Frances Ethel Gumm. The name "Garland" was adopted by the MGM studios.
Not when she was alive. Liza never had children of her own, and Lorna was only 16 or 17 when Judy died. Joey, only 13 or 14. Lorna now has children, not completely sure if Joe…y does. But if Judy were still alive, she would be a grandmother. May Judy continue to rest in peace.
Judy Garland died in June of l969. Age was given as 47. cause of death, drug overdose. If factors of time and distance may have been altered by a few hours, she might have tak…en off in the family Volkswagen and been a victim of a motor-vehicle accident, as it was she never did get off the John alive. ( she died in the bathroom of the apartment of her husband, in England.)
Judy Garland was a famous singer, actress, and dancer.
Not in the abusive sense a la (Mommy Dearest) Crawford. But, one must realize that Judy Garland had some addictive habits which could not help but have a deleterious imp…act on her children. Having to monitor your mother (as a child, mind you) for signs of a possible Alcoholic seizure or Drug overdose is hardly a normal childhood activity, but Lorna Luft mentions this hazardous duty in her autobiography. Having an alcoholic parent is itself a form of abuse, even if it does not contribute to neglect or (slap-happy) violence.
according to her last husband, Mickey Deans ( a nightclub owner)- she was something of a biblliophile, liked to read for pleasure. she was quite interested in Nicholas and Ale…xandra- then out in book form ( she died before the movie version was made) and was quite taken with the elusive aspects of Anastasia.
No Judy garland was just a stage name. Her real name is Frances Ethel Gumm
Although Garland never got much of the money she made through her performances, and what she did receive was largely wasted on bad choices, she was not bankrupt at the time of… her death.
No she did not commit suicide intentionally. She over dosed on pills accidentally and died - This is debatable. She had been on pills basically since before she was 13, had …five failed marriages, and 99% of her life revolved around her career-which was struggling or next to nonexistent. She was no longer a young star, and struggled mentally and emotionally, as well as with addictions. Due to her long term substance abuse, she had cirrhosis of the liver. That is all very true, but it is also possible that her tolerance to them was up to the point where she would have to keep taking more to finally get the effects. It's possible when she took the pills it was in response to a previous dose not working and finally it was to much and her body couldn't take it anymore. Plus, her main type of suicide was by cutting herself, she seemed to prefer that than trying to overdose. Just throwing that in there as a side note.
She never lived in Tn. Her fathers family was from there and because she loved him so much she used to claim that she lived there, but she did not. She was born in Grand Rapid…s Minnesota and when she was 4 moved to Lancaster, California. She moved around a lot when she was older, but mostly lived in California and New York.
