Wizard of Oz munchkins sexually molested Dorothy: Judy Garland's ex

The third of Judy Garland's five husbands, Sid Luft was the one man in her life who stuck around. He was chiefly responsible for the final act of Judy’s meteoric comeback after she was unceremoniously booted off the MGM lot: he produced her iconic, Oscar-nominated vehicle A Star Is Born and expertly shaped her concert career.

Previously unpublished, Sid Luft’s intimate autobiography tells his and Judy’s story in hard-boiled yet elegant prose.

And it's shocking claim is that munchkins reached under 16 year old Judy's skirt and molested her repeatedly while filming 'The Wizard of Oz.'

He wrote: “They thought they could get away with anything because they were so small. They would make Judy’s life miserable on set by putting their hands under her dress. The men were 40 or more years old.”


One witness to the filming described the munchkin actors as 'an unholy assembly of pimps, hookers and gamblers' in a 2014 article in Britain's The Sunday People.

Judy and I: My Life with Judy Garland comes out March 1st.
