Biography by Anne Edwards. You are right. Ethel been there and - leaned over Judy and with her own finger straightened a letter in Judy´s signature. So - I don´t know where is truth, but i think, that Judy´s mother was been bad woman. When Judy was pregnant for the first time Ethel forced her to abortion.

Which biography ? There are quite a few in print and I believe some as ever aren't completely accurate. I'm sure I read somewhere that Ethel Gumm her mother did a weird thing after Judy signed her name in the cement straightened out the writing or something ? Though that doesn't seem to be borne out by that picture. Ethel was a bit of a control freak in those early days when it came to Judy, she had dreamed of being the big star her daughter became.
