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.

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."

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.

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.
