****.

A big budget musical adaptation of this short book became the surprise Broadway hit of 1961, starring the great Judy Garland, June Allison, and a very young Robert Goulet. 'Two Gals and a Lemming' became the last successful musical project of Ms. Garland's tragic career.

Slated for the silver screen, the project was shelved when further DNA research found the supposedly 'new' species of Bog Lemming was actually just a regional variant of the Brown-mantled Bog Lemming. Many believe this revelation was what pushed Judy Garland over the edge and into her ultimate tailspin of booze, pills, and meaningless sex.
