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 Previously unpublished, Sid Luft's intimate autobiography tells his and Judy's story. The romance lasted Judy's lifetime, despite the separations, the reconciliations, and the divorce.

The title of this book should have been I and Judy. It is 80% Sid Luft and 20% Judy Garland. The book also needed an editor and fewer parties. My one positive conclusion about the book is more about Mr. Luft, if what he wrote was accurate, than about the book. Of all the pill pushers, sycophants, users, and thieves that surrounded Judy Garland virtually all of her life Sid seems to be the only person who loved her and actually had her best interests at heart. You can basically skip the first 17 chapters, as this is totally Mr. Luft's autobiography. I really did not read this book to learn about him. He constantly denies that he was an alcoholic, but is drinking on virtually every page. If you want to read a biography of Judy Garland, pick another book. Kristi & Abby Tabby
