Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Lorna Luft Interview 2019…
Lorna Luft is an American television, stage, and film actress and singer. She is the daughter of singer and actress Judy Garland and producer Sidney Luft, and half-sister to singer and actress Liza Minnelli.
In 2019 Ms. Luft is back in the UK promoting her new book ‘A STAR IS BORN – Judy Garland – AND THE FILM THAT GOT AWAY’ available below.
In her new book, Judy Garland’s daughter tells the story of A Star Is Born — at once the crowning achievement and greatest disappointment of her mother’s legendary career.
Enjoy an exclusive HD TV interview with Lorna via YouTube:
With a remake starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper taking the box office by storm, this is a vivid account of the classic film’s production, loss, and reclamation.
Luft was born in Santa Monica, California. She attended University High School in Los Angeles during her senior year and was a member of the school choir.
Not only is Lorna Luft the daughter of Judy Garland, she is also the daughter of the film’s producer, Sid Luft. In her new book, she tells the story of the production, and of her mother’s fight to save her career.
Teaming with film historian Jeffrey Vance, the book is a vivid and refreshingly candid account of the crafting, loss and restoration of a movie classic, complemented by a trove of images from the family collection taken both on and off the set. It also includes essays on other screen adaptations of A Star is Born, to round out a complete history of the quintessential Hollywood story.
