A contemporary newspaper report from Melbourne: 'Singer Judy Garland, who walked out on an audience after she was booed yesterday, was tonight put on a plane leaving for Sydney. Three airport officials, as well as American actor Mark Herron, her constant companion since she arrived for a concert tour in Australia, struggled with her on the tarmac. "No, no, no," she cried, as she was pulled through a crowd of fans towards the plane.' Garland (1922-1969) started performing as a young child. In 1939, aged 17, she starred in 'The Wizard of Oz'. Despite a successful Hollywood career, psychotropic drugs which she had originally been prescribed to control her weight, destroyed her mentally and physically. She died of a drugs overdose in a London hotel.
