    The bold weight of Ed Benguiat’s Discotheque in use on the cover of The Other Side of the Rainbow: With Judy Garland on the Dawn Patrol, a biography of Judy Garland, known for her role as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, by author Mel Tormé. It seems the first and second editions of the book used this cover design.

    From the publisher’s notes: '

    “That winter of The Judy Garland Show will never be forgotten by anyone who shared in the unbelievable confusion, excitement, humor, sadness, and frustration of it all. It is a story that has never been told, a profile in some depth of a frenetic nine-month period in Judy’s life. It is a book for the many thousands who were deeply saddened by her death and wonder why her world went to pieces.” Steve Allen wrote, “Mel Tormé sensitively reflects the reality that was Judy Garland. Perhaps only another entertainer could so clearly suggest the puzzling mixture of ego and self-destructive insecurity that tortures so many prominent performers.”
