Judy Garland as Dorothy was sexually harassed by the Munchkins on the set of The Wizard of Oz, according to her ex-husband Sid Luft.

An unfinished book written by Mr. Luft, discovered in his archives in 2016, has now been published. Luft died in 2005.

Detailing his former wife's torment, 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 forty or more years old," he wrote.

Bert Lahr, who played the Cowardly Lion, said: "Many Munchkins made their living by panhandling."

For their role in The Wizard of Oz, the Munchkins earned between $50 to $100 USD a week, spending their money on an "unholy assembly of pimps, hookers and gamblers" as they stayed at Los Angeles's Culver Hotel where they stayed during filming.

You have to keep an eye on those panhandling Munchkins you never know what they will get up to (no pun intended  ;D) They knew how to spend their money wisely though😁

Are Dorothy's legs a bit on the stumpy side or is it just the photo?

It's just the camera angle or the way she is sitting, but she had nice legs.

I guess there's not much the Munchkins can do with that kind of money but use it for entertainment. There are rumours that the Munchkins "had sex orgies in the hotel" with producer Mervyn LeRoy having "to have police on just about every floor."

Miss Garland once described the Munchkin actors' behaviour, saying: "They were little drunks. They got smashed every night, and they picked them up in butterfly nets."

the Munchkins would sure love to come to certain areas of Laos at night..

I'm pretty sure prostitution didn't exist in Laos in the 1930's, so Laos wouldn't have been the "go to" country for the Munchkins.

It all began in the 1960's in small numbers, but flourished in recent years due to the many hotels, clubs and bars in Laos.

it has always existed I think. It's even recorded in the history books that it existed in Ancient Thailand. I think there must have been at least some in Laos back then..It's an ancient trade. they even had it in ancient rome..

There were some Lao prostitutes in the very old days in the 1930's, but they worked secretly and mainly served high ranking people like army generals.

The average Joe wouldn't be able to walk into a bar and meet up with a prostitute as easily like today because during the Lao Monarchy era when we had a King and Queen who controlled the country, Lao girls always stayed home with their families.

The Munchkins would have been arrested if they came to Laos with the intent of sleeping with prostitutes. The law in Laos in the 1930's is very strict and different to the Laos you see today, where there are laws but they are not enforced.

I think a sex worker from the 1930s would be more or less someone kept in the shadows as a sexually subservient concubine to a person of power as opposed to the girls of today.

People have done some awful things to her, being young and pretty.

The studio boss, Louis B. Mayer, did it to her too. He liked to fondle her left breast and this came directly from her, so it's not a story that others have made up.

I'm not sure because I'm not female but I hear that's something that happens to a lot of pretty girls all the time. They claim to get a lot of unwanted attention from men everywhere they go..Men are just thinking about sex all the time.

Why just her left breast? :D :D :D I would be right in the middle of the valley. ;D

He only went for her left breast because he liked to tell her "this is where you sing from."

He is referring to the area of her left breast that she sang from her heart.

what is the penalty for groping women in Laos? I think I heard it was death for rape, though.

Title: Re: Judy Garland as Dorothy was groped by the Munchkins
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 15th Feb, 2017 at 3:38pm
Groping is a serious crime in Laos and there will be some jail time, but you won't receive the death penalty because you're just touching, and not sexually penetrating someone without their consent.

The Wizard of Oz secrets about Judy Garland as Dorothy revealed






The Wizard of Oz secrets about Judy Garland as Dorothy revealed by the singer-actress herself, and those close to her.

[list bull-redball]
  • Judy Garland's breasts were growing and needed to be strapped down
  • MGM Studio boss Louis B. Mayer sexually molested her by placing his hand on her left breast
  • Older men on the set of The Wizard of Oz liked to hit on her
  • Some of the Munchkins liked to put their hands under her dress
  • Invited to Culver Hotel sex party with the Munchkins but disallowed by her mother

    Oh my Lord....Jesus freaking Christ. I hope Dorothy was not traumatized too much. So where is the image of her strap downed breasts? ;D ;D ;D

    Title: Re: Judy Garland as Dorothy was groped by the Munchkins
    Post by Admin Saovaluck on 4th Mar, 2017 at 1:34pm
    It probably affected her but she always tried to stay strong in the public eye.

    There was also a plot to kidnap her. An anonymous telephone call was made to the West Los Angeles police to inform them that she would be taken into the mountains, and held for $50,000 ransom.

    They obviously didn't take any photos of Judy Garland as Dorothy getting dressed, but there's a miniseries with an actress by the name of Tammy Blanchard who played Dorothy to demonstrate how they did it.

    so why did they strap them down? they wanted her to look younger? Anyway that's pretty crazy that the Munchkins invited her to a sex party. Would she have gone if her mother didn't forbid her?

    Title: Re: Judy Garland as Dorothy was groped by the Munchkins
    Post by Admin Saovaluck on 6th Mar, 2017 at 1:40pm
    Yes, apparently, and she didn't feel comfortable because it was tight and it was also very hot during filming.

    She didn't really like the Munchkins, the male ones anyway, so I don't think she would have gone if she had her own way.

    Title: Re: Judy Garland as Dorothy was groped by the Munchkins

    She didn't like the Munchkins because size mattered to Dorothy :tongue1

    She has three kids so obviously not.

    But if you meant at the time she played Dorothy, she already lost her virginity.

    You sure know a lot about Judy Garland admin. So, who did she lose her virginity to? Was it her boyfriend? The same person that gave her 3 kids or a different guy?

    Title: Re: Judy Garland as Dorothy was groped by the Munchkins
    Post by Admin Saovaluck on 11th Mar, 2017 at 3:15pm
    I know a lot of things about Judy Garland because I'm her biggest fan.

    She lost her virginity to a different guy about her age, and not the two older gentlemen who gave her 3 kids.

    She only had short romances and didn't have a steady boyfriend during her teenage years because her employer MGM controlled who she could see.

    Her first real love was to a guy name Tyrone Power, an actor who was 8 years older than her, but she wasn't allowed to see him because MGM was thinking about making money and they wanted the Hollywood screen couple image of Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland to stay in people's head.

    this is kinda funny to me but, i don't think the munchkins would grope Judy, i do believe the drunk part though, but in a interview it was said that Judy gave the munchkins a huge box of candy just for them, she even said "sweets for the sweets"

    I believe Luft's story. It's not the sort of thing anyone would come out and joke about unless it was true. It wasn't all the Munchkins that did it, but there would have been a few.

    Judy Garland was only a teenager so no one would listen to her or take her seriously. In the 1930's you can get away with anything.

    I truly believe that if the Munchkins had asked here politely, Dorothy would have surrendered to the task in question.

    Back in the day when there was less oversight and union. The most powerful people in show biz took advantage
    of the actors and actress. I mean even the munchkins were
    perv. I guess it was a free for all especially the pretty woman.

    Miss Judy Garland was the Star of Wizard of Oz, when being a Hollywood Star meant something. Any one who molested Miss Judy would have been fired. Also I don't think Miss Judy would have allowed such behaviour.

    Similar to Judy Garland, Sarah Monahan was an Australian child film star who was molested at work but no action was taken until now, over two decades down the track.

    So child sexual abuse doesn't usually come out in the open straight away, but many years down the track because the child star fear losing their job at the time.

    true, Judy must have enraged she did not have any power, the 30s seem like a horrible place in the show biz

    i'm sure Judy lost her virginity when she was 15 i believe.
    I have no idea how she got away with that.
