    Judy Garland Signed Contract. When MGM planned to cast Shirley Temple in "The Wizard of Oz," Judy Garland very nearly missed out on her most celebrated role. Fortunately (for her), the deal fell through and she was cast as Dorothy. Even after that, the actress nearly lost her definitive screen moment when the studio decided to cut the song "Over the Rainbow"; they finally kept the number after it tested well in previews. Featured is a contract between Garland and the William Morris Agency, dated September 18, 1951, and signed by the actress. The document is in great condition with the usual filing holes. The document is framed and matted along with a photo of Garland from "The Wizard of Oz." With COA from PSA/DNA.
