Hollywood in the 1920s - where stars were created, glamorised and lionised, and where child-star Francis Gumm took her first step on the path that was to rocket her to world-wide fame and fortune. The beginning of the legend of Judy Garland. In this searching biography that legend is examined and stripped of its glittering veneer. Revealed is a lonely woman desperately searching out love and affection, emotions she only discovered in the adulation of her millions of fans. Kept going by pills and the pressure of those eager to abuse and exploit her, she was driven to breaking point, but still the magic lingered on. A story of dreams and nightmares, marriages and divorces, financial crises and her tragic early death, the sensational Garland legend still survives today.
