Judy Garland’s time filming one of her iconic films may have been anything but a skip down the Yellow Brick Road.

Sid Luft’s posthumous memoir titled “Judy and I: My Life with Judy Garland,” which is being released in paperback on Sept. 4, claims the then-teenage actress was sexually harassed by the little people who starred as “the munchkins” in 1939’s “The Wizard of Oz.”

Luft, a movie producer credited for helping Garland revive her Hollywood career in the 1950s, passed away in 2005 at age 89.

“They would make Judy’s life miserable on set by putting their hands under her dress… The men were 40 or more years old,” wrote Luft, who married the star in 1952, as reported by TheWrap. “They thought they could get away with anything because they were so small.”
