Judy Garland may have spent just forty-seven years on earth, but she had her fair share of marital unions, as she was married four times in her lifetime. Her marriage to Sid Luft proved to be her longest and her daughter, Lorna shed more light on the unique relationship shared by the couple.

LORNA LUFT REFLECTS ON PARENT’S MARRIAGE

The 66-year-old actress revealed that her parents had great love for each other and shared a real bond. But their relationship always had the propensity to turn volatile at any point due to their hot temper. This only made their relationship much more enjoyable.

JUDY GARLAND AND SID LUFT’S MARRIAGE

Judy and Sid married in 1952. Their marriage was Judy’s third at that time, following her previous marriages with David Rose, and Vincente Minnelli.

The union lasted for thirteen years (the longest marriage in her lifetime), before ultimately ending in divorce in 1969. The ex-couple had two children, Lorna and her brother, Joey.

THE SID & JUDY DOCUMENTARY

Her parents may have left an unforgettable impression on her, but there are a few people who have several misconceptions about the couple. To address this, a documentary about the couple, titled “Sid & Judy” which chronicles their relationship has been created and will begin airing on October 18.

The director of the documentary, Stephen Kijak, revealed that it became necessary to do it to correct the misgivings people had about Sid and Judy’s marriage.

He added that while some of the ill feelings towards their union were probably true, many people didn’t know that they had a great love and respect for each other, and helped each other to achieve greatness.
