Judy was one of the most talented singers ever. She also had a lot of pain and struggle throughout her life. Despite that, she had a good heart, which is hard to encounter in Hollywood. At a time when gay men were oppressed beyond belief, they identified with her struggles, and she theirs.

Did anyone see a 20-year old Lorna Luft as the mystery guest on the new batch of BuzzR TV’s WMLs? Of course, no one guessed her identity. Right after seeing her from 1972, I watched The Fabulous Allan Carr documentary, where she’s featured prominently as a talking head.

I don't get the Joey Luft jokes in every thread, is he supposed to be retarded?
Is the headline the whole story, in toto, as we say in Kansas?

On WML, she mentioned she was going to appear on Ed Sullivan to receive her award as newcomer of the year.

Again, what’s the joke about her claiming yo be molested - something I can find no evidence of.

I guess we'll never know, R22. I guess the joke is that there is none.

Lorna makes up a lot of stuff. In her book she details a whole bunch of space to how she was promised the lead in Cats only to read in the papers that Betty Buckley had been cast.
She claims the producers had her working on Memory for months with experts they paid for only to somehow pass her by.
It doesn't jive with Buckley's story (backed by other cast members) of months of callbacks being declined and then contacted again and told she was back in the running with more callbacks and eventually being cast.
Broadway people say it is highly doubtful a show would pay to train a singer for a role for months and it is odd that if Luft was so close to getting the part that she didn't take over as a replacement or start one of the companies.

About 15 years ago, Ms. Luft tried to generate interest in her professional work by gratuitously mentioning in press interviews that as a child she’d been a victim of sex abuse. Child molestation was a very hot topic at the time. For example, in 2005 Michael Jackson was put on trial and acquitted of sex abuse charges. Also, the sex abuse scandal within the Catholic Church was all over the news. Lorna appeared to be trying to garner some public sympathy by jumping on the “I was molested” bandwagon. What she said sounded neither credible nor convincing. Instead, it came off as a publicity stunt intended to revive a flagging career.

^ Is there a particular interview or news article floating around? I've never seen it.

The old DL legend is that she claimed she was molested in her autobiography but she didn't reveal who the molester was. I've never read the, or even know whether she has a, biography. So I don't know whether this is true.

Don't think so, R32. I search for something every once in a while and can never come up with the source for it.
Sometimes I wonder if the person who started it got confused with Sid Luft's claim that Judy was molested by some actors playing Munchkins on the set of Oz. That was back in 2005 (Luft's book was published posthumously) and I remember Liza was reportedly really angry about it, saying that it wasn't true.
