Judy Garland

Do you remember watching The Wizard of Oz? Today we remember legendary actress Judy Garland, who was born on June 10, 1922 in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. Judy was born Frances Ethel Gumm to Ethel Marion and Francis Avent Gumm, both vaudeville performers. She began her career at an early age, and by 16, she scored one of her greatest roles as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. The classic film continues to remain a favorite of contemporary audiences.

Despite facing significant troubles in her personal life, Judy continued to find success in film, such as Meet Me in St. Louis and A Star is Born, and as a recording artist. Did you know she has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her contributions to film and music?
