Iconic Bel Air estate

bathrooms, a cook’s kitchen, an office, a library, and spacious formal dining
and living areas.  The property

house last year for $5.2 million, a cool $2 million.’

Star fought a
lifelong battle with drugs

Garland and other young performers were constantly given
amphetamines and barbiturates to cope with the pressure of making movies and
this regular dose of drugs led to a lifelong struggle with addiction.

Garland was married five times and was found dead in her
bathroom in London on June 22, 1969.

Her daughter, Liza Minnelli, has also become a huge screen
icon appearing in Oscar nominated films such as Cabaret and Arthur.
