Sid ‘One-Punch’ Luft, amateur-boxer, producer and Judy Garland’s third husband was the one man in her life who caught round, serving to her obtain a meteoric comeback within the 1960s. It was Luft who reversed the fortunes of an apparently light profession, seeing her triumph at Carnegie Corridor, in ‘A Star Is Born’ and ‘The Judy Garland Present’. Beforehand unpublished, Sid Luft’s intimate autobiography tells their story in hard-boiled but elegant prose. It begins on a fateful night time in New York Metropolis when the not-quite-divorced Judy and the not-quite-divorced Sid meet at Billy Reed’s Little Membership. A straight-talking sharp shooter, Sid fell for Judy onerous and quick and the romance endured by separations, reconciliations, and later divorce. Nevertheless, her drug dependencies and suicidal tendencies put an incredible pressure on the connection. Sid didn't full his memoir; it led to 1960 after Judy employed David Begelman and Freddie Fields to handle her profession. However Randy L. Schmidt, acclaimed editor of Judy Garland on Judy Garland, seamlessly pieced collectively the ultimate part of the ebook from intensive interviews with Sid, most beforehand unpublished. Regardless of all the pieces, Sid by no means stopped loving Judy and by no means forgave himself for not with the ability to save her from the demons that finally drove her to an early loss of life at age forty-seven in 1969. Sid served as chief conservator of the Garland legacy till his loss of life on the age of eighty-nine in 2005. That is his testomony to the love of his life. ‘In prose so brassy that it bruises the sensibilities, Luft… illuminates the darkish facet of life within the highlight and dispels any sentimental illusions in regards to the glories of present enterprise in Hollywood’s basic age.’ - The New Yorker

Raised up in The Inner City Projects Called FAIR FIELD COURT Located In The (HEART) City Of Richmond, Va by a single Black Woman who I call (MOM). How Hard Can That Be, I know you would probably guess that with ONE CHILD it wouldn't be so hard, BUT it wasn't, it was (MIGHTY HARD), To Raise A Young Boy
(ESPECIALLY ONE LIKE ME) to be a Grown Man a Father ? My Mother worked HARD you hear me. 2 jobs, one in the early morning and One in Late Evenings. I am being 1000000 with you when I say this, (NOT 100) most of the time when she left in the Morning for work, she never returned home until late evening, it was straight to the part time job from that Morning Job, just to provide for Herself and Me. You know some, Now that I am grown, or have grown up, I KNOW HOW HARD THAT WAS FOR HER. (THESE DAYS, THAT'S GOTTA BE EVEN HARDER, I WOULD BELIEVE. ) Some -things do change, but never MY MOM'S LOVE FOR ME. What did change was ME. I started growing up, became a father @ 20 (KINDA GOOD THOUGH RIGHT?), went through a lot of turmoil though, Dropped Out Of School. (TOOK MOM THROUGH HELL - YOU HERE ME!). and YES, I KNOW I DID... NOW. I end up GOING TO JAIL on her (MY MOM) a couple of times. Matter of Fact, to Keep it 1000000 That's all I did for small things though, like Driving. I end up having 4 more Kids, whom I love dearly, like any father would. NOW, My Mom works a part time job now (STILL ABOUT THAT MONEY) and she's Retired. BUT ONE THING, MOM don't only take care of HERSELF & Me now, BUT (MY KIDS) Her Grandkids. HEY, What can I say, SHE'S MY MOM. "Love you Mother".. and THANKS.. BUT Y'ALL STILL GOTTA REMEMBER, >>> (I AM A PRODUCT OF MY ENVIRONMENT) <<<
