Personal Quote:

Whatever bad things happened, you don't fall out of love with somebody like her. All I know is that, if anyone tried to save a woman who was breaking apart, I did. I know that I did the best I could do, and it still wasn't enough. -- following Garland's accidental drug death in 1969 See more »

Trivia:

While reviving her career at the London Palladium and the Palace Theatre in the early 1950s, it was his idea to have wife Judy Garland come down to the edge of the stage and sing "Over the Rainbow" for dramatic effect. See more »
