The Malibu, California beach house once owned by Judy Garland is now up for sale. Although the home has been modernized in recent years, the home still offers stunning views and spaces for families. Garland lived at the home with her second husband, director Vincente Minnelli, and their daughter, Liza Minnelli, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
Garland, who was born Frances Ethel Gumm, and Minnelli were married from 1945 to 1951. Their only child together, Liza, was born in 1946. Liza recently celebrated her 75th birthday on March 12. Garland had two children with her third husband, Sidney Luft, Lorna, 68, and Joey, 66. Garland and Minnelli worked on five movies together, Meet Me in St. Louis, The Pirate, The Clock, Ziegfeld Follies, and Till The Clouds Roll By. Minnelli died in July 1986 at age 83. Garland died in June 1969 at 47. Their work together and alone still lives on, cherished by fans and frequently airing on TCM.

Although Liza has not made a movie in a while, she did appear on the cover of Variety in February 2020 to talk about her incredible life and career. She said she was first on the stage at 3 years old. "When I was older, like 11, she’d sing 'Swanee' [from A Star Is Born] and she made me dance to it and I’d say, 'I don’t have a choreographer,' which made her laugh," Liza recalled. "She got such a kick out of it. It was like, 'Look what I made.' And I was so happy whenever she was happy."prevnext
Thankfully, Liza has plenty of good memories of her mother. Liza was 23 when her mother died. "She was funny, very funny, clear, incredibly intelligent, but more than you could even imagine, and in the moment," Liza told Variety. Liza has an Oscar, two Golden Globes, one Emmy and four Tonys. In 1990, she received an honorary Grammy Living Legend Award.prev
