* HarsherInHindsight: If one remembers "Paris is a Lonely Town" from ''WesternAnimation/GayPurree'' where Mewsette was contemplating suicide, Judy had died seven years after the film's release of an accidental barbiturate overdose.
** If you remember her StarMakingRole as Dorothy from TheWizardofOz, it should be worth noting that her starring as Dorothy was what kicked off her drug addiction, as the directors had her take barbiturates to make her thinner.

* AwardSnub: In 1954, Creator/JudyGarland, resting and recuperating in a hospital from giving birth to her son, Joey Luft, would watch as Creator/GraceKelly would win for ''The Country Girl'' over Garland's seemingly surefire win for her comeback, ''A Star Is Born'', a film heavily edited from 182 to 154 minutes, eliminated crucial dramatic scenes and two musical numbers. She had a camera crew positioned to film her at her hospital bed to broadcast an acceptance speech. Legend has it that what the announcement was made, the crew coldly left Garland, packed up and left. [[MarxBrothers Groucho Marx]] would call the snub "the greatest robbery since the Brinks." Garland [[BreakTheCutie never fully recovered]] from that loss.

** Her 1961 live album ''Judy at Carnegie Hall'' was a relatively late-career Crowning Moment: everyone knew that she'd put on a lot of weight and had had major substance abuse problems, but she took a year off, cleaned up, got fit, went on a tour to limber up and when she finally hit the stage at Carnegie Hall she blew the roof off the sucker, as documented in an album widely considered to be one of the greatest live albums of all time.
