Many hands make short work.

The Hollywood Stars' rule meant that she had to put up with being grabbed by the pussy.

It was a small problem at the time.

This post is like sending out the bat signal for Laslo.

I'll withhold comment until after Laslo provides us with a transcript of the encounter.

(In my best munchkin voice)
As coroner I must aver.
I've thoroughly examined her.
And she is not just merely wet.
She is most completely wet!

My apologies to Laslo.

It was covered up because the molester represented the Lollypop Guild.

And her little dog, too?

At least it wasn't the flying monkeys.

Robert Reich says she planned it all herself.

Gotta watch those munchkins! They can be under your skirt without your even knowing it.

Lo, many, many years ago I was at a party and talked to a girl who studied ballet. She had played a monkey in a Boston Opera Company production of Die Zauberflöte. During the audition a guy pinched her butt and she slapped him hard. The slap heard round the world got her the part.

Usually these allegations (inappropriate sexual behavior of one sort or another) are made twenty or thirty years after the incident (see Bill Clinton or Bill Cosby). This one is eighty years later. Is this a new record?

Anonymous unproveable allegations where both the alleged perpetrators and alleged victim are dead, with no contemporaneous documentation. This is the epitome of Fake News.

“They were little drunks. They got smashed every night and the police used to scoop them up in butterfly nets.”

First they said "molested" now they say "harassed".

I'm thinking she had sex with all of them, including the munchkin named Mickey Rooney, and had multiple orgasms twice a day.

Not just sex, I'm thinking a whole trip around the world sex...

Anyway, that's what I thought about Hollywood at the time...

Lower case chuck relates: During the audition a guy pinched her butt and she slapped him hard. The slap heard round the world got her the part.

It must have been 'many years ago'. Nowadays, she probably would have been sued for assault.

I first read that as Garland was harassed by Steven Mnuchin, and I thought, "Jeez, the media has really lost it. Was he even alive back then?"
