Trivia Judy

The film investigates in Judy Garland's final year of life. Renée Zellweger was born the same year that Judy Garland died: 1969. The film addresses the harsh treatment Judy Garland received at MGM in the 1930s and 40s. They put her on a strict diet and gave her prescription medication to control her weight and to help her sleep or stay awake, medication she eventually became addicted to. She probably also received unwanted sexual advances by senior staff during those years much like her younger 'rival' Shirley Temple was forced to endure at Twentieth Century Fox during the same period.
