Judy Garland signs a standard real estate document as buyer and President of Kingsrow Enterprises, Inc.
Partly Printed Carbon Document Signed: "Judy Garland" in ink as Buyer and President of Kingsrow Enterprises, Inc., 2p front and verso, 8½x8¾. Los Angeles, California, 1963 May 2. Standard Form Deposit Receipt Approved by Beverly Hills Realty Board Form used in the selling of a building. Headed: "George Elkins Company". Agreement that Kingsrow Enterprises, Inc. will put $40,000.00 in an Escrow account. Just eight days after she signed this form, Garland appeared in concert at New York's Waldorf-Astoria hotel for a CBS affiliates meeting. The meeting, which introduced 1,000 CBS affiliates from around the nation to the new season's shows and personalities, included a show on May 10, 1963 that opened with the cast of The Beverly Hillbillies and Phil Silvers. Garland, who finished the show with a one-woman concert, was nervous about the performance, knowing that there was doubt that she was up to the rigors of a weekly series. After catching the heel of her shoe in a crack in the stage floor, Garland sang a parody relating to their concerns, completely winning the hearts of her audience. Her series, The Judy Garland Show, aired from 1963-1964. In 1963, Garland also hosted a TV special, Judy Garland and Her Guests, Phil Silvers and Robert Goulet, and she appeared in two feature films, I Could Go On Singing and A Child is Waiting. Judy Garland (1922-1969) sang on stage with her sisters in the late 1920s and appeared on records and films from 1936, but her breakthrough to superstardom came with her role as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz (1939), singing her signature song, "Over the Rainbow". A competent actress and superbly gifted singer, Garland won an Oscar (with 2 more nominations), three Grammys (plus 6 of her recordings in the Grammy Hall of Fame), a Tony, and at least three Emmy nominations during her legendary career. By the late 1940s, her film career was suffering as a result of personal problems, including struggles with alcohol and the barbiturates that finally killed her, but she made a dazzling comeback in concert tours of the 1960s, especially Judy at Carnegie Hall (1961). Garland is the mother of actress Liza Minnelli and screenwriter/producer Lorna Luft. Lightly creased with folds through top of signature. Slightly soiled. Red ink notes (unknown hand) throughout. Staple holes at upper blank margin. Overall, fine condition.
