From the Julien’s catalog:


Michael Siewert has been collecting Judy Garland memorabilia since he was six years old. A poor kid from Kentucky, he would frequent flea markets, purchasing what he could afford — items such as records, postcards, and photographs.

As an adult, his passion for Garland’s legacy continued to grow, and his hobby became more serious as he began collecting her personal mementos and stage and screen costumes. He became well known for his efforts while traveling with original Munchkins from The Wizard of Oz and Garland’s family and colleagues to exhibitions of his collection that received rave reviews.

Turner Classic Movies hired Siewert to exhibit his collection at its inaugural TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood. In 2016, the London Palladium hired him to exhibit there, where Garland had several career triumphs. Two of Garland’s husbands called on Siewert to include their Garland possessions in his collection so he could share them with the world.

The boy from Kentucky never dreamed his hobby would become world-renowned or provide him with the thrilling opportunities that it has. While Siewert has savored preserving Garland’s legacy and sharing his collection, he has decided it is time for others to own these artifacts of show business history from the legendary Judy Garland.

  1. Is it me or the mannequins? Judy looks much, much better in those outfits than the mannequins. I would have sold my first born for that turquoise vest. The “wedding” dress looks like it could be worn either way.

  2. My mother was born in 1931, and like most teens in her day of the Golden Age if Hollywood, she sent off for the official 4×6 glamour shots if the stars. I have her collection, in excellent condition, of over 20 stars: Judy Garland, Lana Turner, Mickey Rooney in his army uniform, and other big name stars. I’ve been searching for someone to evaluate their value and a buyer.
    Please contact me with any info you may have in this regard.
