“Lost on the Yellow Brick Road,” by Michael Selsman, CEO of Archer Entertainment (OTCMKT:AEMC), co-authored, with Michael Simpson, published by Troika Publishing Group, is the story of a woman in terror much of her life, who had obstacles to climb, pitfalls that may as well have had knives at the bottom, fleeting moments of joy and, ultimately, an end that so many have succumbed to. Her infectious charisma never failed her, not even on the darkest of nights, the most troubled times. She was not just a tortured artist; she was a kind, suffering soul,” says Mr. Selsman, who represented her as her publicist in the years before Judy Garland had her last comeback.
“Everyone knows Judy Garland had outstanding credits to her name—The Wizard of Oz, Meet Me in St. Louis, A Star Is Born—but it is a rarity when someone knows the true Judy Garland.
“Besides drugs and alcohol, Judy received solace from men. Not the sex or physical aspect—proven by her marrying several gay men throughout her life—but the love, the adoration, and most of all, the attention she so desperately needed since she could walk. Judy had her heart broken into too many pieces.”
Judy Garland brought the house down with her soaring, booming voice; her parents were in show business long before she was born, with a stage mother that was as ruthless as the Wicked Witch of the West; MGM took her in as its own at the age of thirteen, where she made countless classic films yet consequently grew up to be excruciatingly insecure and unequipped to deal with life on life’s terms. Her short forty-seven years was an inspiring voyage
Hollywood’s cruelty lies just beneath the surface. Just like today, the public is morbidly fickle. Until she died. Then the stream of “stunned” and “sad” celebrity comments started flowing.
“Everybody loves you when you’re dead.”
The Wizard of Oz is identified as the most influential film of all time in a study published in the journal Applied Network Science.
