Judy Garland (born Frances Ethel Gumm) was a legendary actress and singer from the 1930s to the 1960s. She was born in 1922, and as a young child performed with her older sisters as "The Gumm Sisters". In 1935, she was signed to a contract by MGM, who changed her name to Judy Garland. She appeared in some shorts, but in 1937, at Clark Gable's birthday party, she sang "You Made Me Love You", which was filmed, and got her noticed, and her role as Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz" gave her great fame. She appeared in "Ziegfeld Girl" in 1941, and "For Me and My Gal" in 1942, and she appeared in a series of popular musicals with Mickey Rooney. Her personal life was very messy, with many affairs and problems with drugs and alcohol. She married director Vincente Minnelli in 1945, and in 1946 had daughter Liza. She went on to another marriage to Sid Luft, and the remainder of her life was very troubled, but she continued to perform, including giving two excellent film performances in "Judgment at Nuremberg" (where she was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award) and "A Child is Waiting". Some of her other movies include: Meet Me in St. Louis, A Star Is Born (nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award for this film), and many more. She passed away in 1969 at the age of 47 from an accidental barbiturate overdose.
