The cause of death of the year-old singer was not immediately established, and an autopsy was scheduled. She came here at the end of last year to play a cabaret in another of the "comeback" performances that dotted her last 15 years.
Three months ago she married Mickey Deans, a discotheque manager. Deans, her fifth husband, who found Miss Garland dead on the bathroom floor in their home in the Belgravia district. Funeral arrangements were incomplete tonight. Here, the story is told, Frances Gumm--both her parents were vaudeville players--sang "Jingle Bells" on a Christmas program. She responded so favorably to the footlights that her father was forced to remove her after she had repeated the song seven times.
The other side of the compulsively vibrant, exhausting performances that were her stage hallmark was a seemingly unquenchable need for her audiences to respond with acclaim and affection.
And often they did, screaming, "We love you, Judy--we love you. She was an instinctive actress and comedienne with a sweet singing voice that had a kind of brassy edge to it, which made her something of an anachronism: In an earlier era, or in another society, she might have grown up slowly, developing her talent as she disciplined it, and gone on like other, tougher performers to enjoy a long and profitable career.
Discipline Not Required Instead, Judy became a star at 15 in the relentless world of motion pictures. Movies--which are put together in bits and pieces--do not particularly require rigid discipline, and she therefore never had a chance to acquire the quality that could have sustained her talent over the years. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the career of Judy Garland was that she was able to continue as long as she did--long after her voice had failed and long after her physical reserves had been spent in various illnesses that might have left a less tenacious woman an invalid.
She was the kind of movie personality whose private life defined much of her public response. Whenever she stepped out on a stage in recent years, she brought with her, whether she welcomed it or not, all the well-publicized phantoms of her emotional breakdowns, her career collapses and her comebacks.
The pressures of performing began for her at an early age. When she was 18 and Louis B. Recounts Experience She wrote about the experience years later: The unhappiness that plagued her during the last few years alone included the breakup of her year marriage to Sid Luft, a film director and the third of her five husbands; a subsequent bitter custody fight over their children, Lorna and Joseph, with Mr.
Luft accusing her of having attempted suicide on at least 20 occasions; sudden hospitalizations for causes ranging from paralysis to unconsciousness after a fall in a hotel room, and the breaking of her voice during appearances in several cities.
Her parents billed themselves in vaudeville as Jack and Virginia Lee. After her debut with "Jingle Bells," she performed with her sisters, Suzanne and Virginia, until, according to theatrical legend, their act was erroneously billed at a Chicago theatre as "The Glum Sisters.
When the family arrived in Hollywood in , the year-old singer, who made her feature film debut in "Pigskin Parade," was billed as Judy Garland. She made a short subject with another adolescent singer, Deanna Durbin.
She sang "Dear Mr. Gable" in "Broadway Melody of Gable" she confessed her hopeless adolescent love for an idealized movie star in special lyrics added to the ballad "You Made Me Love You.
In , "The Wizard of Oz" earned her a special Oscar.
He had a funny sense of humor, and he laughed all the time--good and loud, like I do. He was a gay Irish gentleman and very good- looking. And he wanted to be close to me, too, but we never had much time together. Her personal troubles had already begun. She was married to the composer-pianist David Rose in They were divorced three years later. The next year she was married to her director, the gifted musical specialist, Vincente Minnelli.
Louis" and was praised for her first nonsinging dramatic performance, in "The Clock. The next year she failed to report for work on three successive films and was reported to be suffering from a nervous breakdown. The one film she did finish in this period, "Summer Stock," attracted much comment because of her increased weight. It was during the next year, , that she slashed her wrists after M-G-M suspended her contract.
Minnelli were divorced the next year. In Miss Garland returned to the stage in England, doing a solo singing show with great success.

She had another success with a vaudeville engagement at the New York Palace. Frequently, however, she complained of laryngitis, and critics noted that her voice had lost some of its quality.
At the same time they noted that her personality retained its full impact. But back she went. Miss Garland described her feelings toward the audience for a magazine interviewer in People en masse have always been wonderful to me. I truly have a great love for an audience, and I used to want to prove it to them by giving them blood. But I have a funny new thing now, a real determination to make people enjoy the show.
I want to give them two hours of just pow. But her erratic work habits had caused the production to take months longer than planned, at great expense. A commercial disappointment, the film represented a personal triumph for her. She was overweight for a star, consistently ill and more temperamental than ever.
Hollywood would not risk employing her.

By the autumn of she was unable to work at all. She felt sick, frightened and mentally confused. In late November she was admitted to a New York hospital, where doctors found she was suffering from hepatitis. They said she might have had the illness for as long as three years and that the hepatitis was attributed at least in part, to the combined effects of certain tranquilizers and diet pills that previous doctors, treating earlier breakdowns, had prescribed for her.
Miss Garland admitted at the time to having taken a great many drugs over the last 15 years, including sleeping pills, pep pills, diet medicines and nerve tonics.
Then, in , she came back again. She followed it with a spectacular, sobbing performance at Carnegie Hall. Miss Garland signed for a weekly television series, with much fanfare, in , but it was a failure.
The carefully nurtured emotional impact that made each of her performances a special event was lost in the weekly program. The Columbia Broadcasting System dropped the show after one season, amid loud complaints from the voluble legion of Garland fans. Seemingly undaunted, she set out for Australia on another concert tour.
Again she was plagued by "laryngitis. After her divorce from Mr. Two years later, they were divorced. She went to London at the end of for a five-week cabaret appearance and announced she would marry Mr. Looking slim and relaxed, Miss Garland won a standing ovation at her first London appearance. But then she began to appear late for performances, and one night walked off the stage when she was heckled by the audience, whom she had kept waiting for an hour and 20 minutes.
A few days later it was announced she was ill and would not finish the last week of the run. Unpredictable as ever, Miss Garland appeared on the stage that night, gave a smash performance and announced that she had married Mr. Deans three weeks earlier in a secret church ceremony.
The confusion from which Miss Garland often seemed to suffer in her personal life apparently extended to her performance in "The Wizard of Oz.
