Sid Luft Dies

  • WENN
Judy Garland's producer ex-husband Sid Luft has died. He was 89. Luft, whose credits include such classics as Kilroy Was Here and A Star Is Born, died on Thursday in Santa Monica, California, of an apparent heart attack, according to his longtime friend and business partner John Kimble. Luft and Garland were married in 1952 and divorced a tumultuous 13 years later. The marriage was Garland's third and Luft's second. They had two children together, Lorna in 1952 and Joey in 1955. Luft also was stepfather to Liza Minnelli, daughter of Garland's second husband, Vincente Minnelli. Luft was credited with helping resurrect Garland's career after she was released from her contract at film studio MGM in 1950 following a series of personal and professional crises. It was at MGM that she became a star and made such films as The Wizard Of Oz and Meet Me In St Louis. After he and Garland divorced, Luft married Patti Hemingway in 1970. That union also ended in divorce. In 1993, he married actress Camille Keaton, who survives him.
