In the smoky mist and mud of the recent  "ME TOO' hysteria, the defense of women
abused by men is  the topic of the day.
Her story of a girl, of an actress and singer  who wants to be a star. And when she

Miss Hartstone brings to light the abuse of Judy Garland who was forced to only
consumme chicken soup and coffee, and given pills for energy.  She died of suicide.

Her journey into Hollywood of the l930"s and the women who lived it is a
