Garland-Sinatra love letter selling at RR Auction

A 1949 love letter from Judy Garland to Frank Sinatra is among the most intriguing lots in RR Auction's November 10-17 Pop Culture sale.

The text is handwritten across four pages.

Garland Sinatra letter
Judy Garland and Frank Sinatra had an affair in 1949

Garland and Sinatra had a short affair in 1949, following Garland's nervous breakdown - allegedly brought on by discovering husband Victor Minnelli in bed with another man.

They would repeat the affair in 1955 (during her marriage to impresario Sid Luft) and remained friends up until her death in 1969.

Garland writes (sic): "You said today that you'd been neglegent. But darling—that's so unimportant compared to the great amount of happiness you've given me.

"I shant forget the hours weve spent together—ever! I'll let you know how everything goes on this trip.

"In the meantime—take good care of yourself—be happy and have lots of fun and laughs. And for Gods sake—keep those wheels in your lil ole head down to the minimum."

Garland and Sinatra were two of the biggest stars of their era.

Memorabilia pertaining to their brief time together will be highly sought after. Bidding on this example is at $2,040 and is likely to go much higher.

The last document John Lennon ever signed and a notebook belonging to jazz legend Miles Davis are among the other highlights of the sale.
