Somewhere over the Barbiturates

Despite her professional triumphs, Judy Garland struggled immensely in her personal life, starting when she was a child. Her self-image was strongly influenced by film executives, who said she was unattractive and constantly manipulated her onscreen physical appearance. She followed the yellow pill road of barbiturates and alcohol, which ultimately led to her death at the age of 47.
