Personal Quote:

[on David Begelman, Garland's manager] He took thousands from Judy, and I tried to warn her. But she wouldn't listen to me. She thought I was just envious. I hated Begelman. When a friend called me and said that the bastard had shot himself, I said, 'Well, he sure as hell shot the right guy.' See more »

Trivia:

A Los Angeles U.S. District judge barred him from selling the replacement Juvenile Oscar Judy Garland received for "The Wizard of Oz." He was also ordered to pay nearly $60,000 to The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to end their second lawsuit against him for repeatedly trying to sell the statuette.
