In my father’s diary he noted that they went out to dinner one night, and Judy poured out her heart about personal life and the problems and pressures of her TV show. Glenn offered a sympathetic ear, a strong shoulder to lean on. Judy was a compelling personality in private as well as on-camera or on the stage. my father recalled:
Judy could make you rock with laughter one moment and make you want to cry with her the next. We began seeing each other. We went out for drinks, had fun. She could trust me, and that meant a lot to her because she felt disappointed by a lot of people she had known in her life… She insisted I come to the rehearsals and tapins when she had her own TV show, to sit up front, and she would sing to me… What an honor, since there was never a better singer than Judy Garland.
