Judy was born into a family that were used to films and theatres since her parents were vaudevillians. Her first performance would be when she was two years old, performing with her sisters singing Jingle Bells, and they would become a performing group in the coming years. Judy would attend Hollywood High School, and would matriculate from University High School.

By 1928, the Gumm sisters had become a group act and they enrolled in a dance school together, eventually making their film debut the following year in “The Big Revue”. They continued making appearances and shorts, with Judy’s first solo in “A Holiday in Storyland”. In late 1934, the group was given a suggestion to change their name since audiences didn’t take the name Gumm seriously. It was then that the group would become the Garland sisters, and Frances would change her name to Judy based on a popular song. The group’s final performance was in a short called “La Fiesta de Santa Barbara”.

In 1935, Judy along with her father was brought to a studio of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer for an impromptu audition. Garland’s performance impressed and she was immediately signed by MGM, who gave her a “girl-next-door” image and she would become one of the financial foundations for the company, earning very high amounts of money. Late in 1935, her father was hospitalized due to meningitis and passed away the following morning.

Eventually MGM paired Garland and Mickey Rooney with performances that were called “backyard musicals”. Their first appearance would be in the movie “Thoroughbreds Don’t Cry”, then on Judy was included in the Hardy Family movies starting from the fourth film “Love Finds Andy Hardy”. In 1938, Judy found another big role in the film “The Wizard of Oz” in which she was cast as the main character Dorothy Gail. Her song “Over the Rainbow” would be one of her most popular and iconic songs. The film found extreme success and earned an estimated $4 million, the equivalent of $68 million today, and Judy received an Academy Juvenile Award.

As Judy grew older she would continue starring in various films for MGM, including “Strike up the Band” and 1944’s “Meet Me in St. Louis”. She then became identified for her great performances in dramatic roles. In great films such as “The Clock”, “The Harvey Girls” and later “Easter Parade”. However, around this time Judy was suffering from addiction from both drugs and alcohol, and eventually after multiple problems within the company she left.

After a few years she would return and start performing in concerts again, giving tribute to her original vaudevillain acts. She would slowly but surely regain her reputation and popularity, eventually getting her own show called “The Judy Garland Show”. The show had multiple guests and was nominated for several Emmy Awards, but she did relapse somewhat into her former habits.

For her personal life, Judy was married five times. Her first was to David Rose which lasted from 1941 to 1944. The second one was to Vincente Minelli, from 1945 to 1951, which produced daughter Liza Minnelli. The third one was to Sidney Luft from 1952 to 1965, with whom she had son Joey and daughter Lorna She was married to Mark Herron from 1965-67, and her final marriage was to Mickey Deans in 1969. Her death was attributed to an accidental overdose of barbiturates, but was probably the culmination of her long addiction to drugs and alcohol.

1If you have to be in a soap opera, try not to get the worst role.
2I've always taken 'The Wizard of Oz' very seriously, you know. I believe in the idea of the rainbow. And I've spent my entire life trying to get over it.
3[on the behavior of the actors playing the Munchkins during the filming of The Wizard of Oz (1939)] They were drunks. They got smashed every night and the police used to scoop them up in butterfly nets.
4[on the 27 takes over 3 days that it took to film 'The Man That Got Away'] I would try to make the electricians and the cameramen and the others react to the song. Only when they had shown the emotion [it] was supposed to evoke did I feel I had reached them.
5You think you can make me sing? Do you think you can? You can get me there, sure, but can you make me sing? I sing for myself. I sing when I want to, whenever I want to, just for me. I sing for my own pleasure, whenever I want. Do you understand that?
6Whenever we'd do that little dance up the Yellow Brick Road, I was supposed to be with them - and they'd shut me out! They would close in, the three of them, and I would be in back of them, dancing. So director Victor Fleming - who was a darling man, always up on a boom - would say, 'Hold it! You three dirty hams! Let that little girl in there! Let her in there!'
7Behind every cloud is another cloud.
8I can live without money, but I cannot live without love.
9Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
10[of the MGM Studio school] The teacher, I think, was named Ma Barker.
11If I am a legend, then why am I so lonely?
12I have the unfortunate habit of not being able to have an affair with a man without being in love with him.
13I'm a woman who wants to reach out and take 40 million people in her arms.
14From the time I was thirteen, there was a constant struggle between MGM and me - whether or not to eat, how much to eat, what to eat. I remember this more vividly than anything else about my childhood.
15When you have lived the life I've lived, when you've loved and suffered, and been madly happy and desperately sad -- well, that's when you realize you'll never be able to set it all down. Maybe you'd rather die first.
16[during her short stint as a cast member of Valley of the Dolls (1967)] The stage hands hadn't even built the set yet, and the press had me walking off it!
17[on daughter Liza Minnelli] I think she decided to go into show business when she was an embryo, she kicked so much.
18Some of the [midget] men used to tease me while we were making The Wizard of Oz (1939). They used to sneak under my dress! I told them if they ever went under there - and I found out about it - they were in big trouble!
19My mother had a marvelous talent for mishandling money - mine. When I was put under stock contract at Metro and had a steady income for the first time, we lived in a four-unit apartment building. I suggested to Mother that we buy it as an investment and rent the other three apartments. She hit me in the mouth and invested the money in a nickel mine in Needles, California, that has never been found. We never got a nickel back.
20In the silence of night I have often wished for just a few words of love from one man, rather than the applause of thousands of people.
21As for my feelings toward "Over the Rainbow", it's become part of my life. It is so symbolic of all my dreams and wishes that I'm sure that's why people sometimes get tears in their eyes when they hear it.
22I wanted to believe and I tried my damndest to believe in the rainbow that I tried to get over and couldn't. So what? Lots of people can't...
23I was born at the age of 12 on a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer lot.
24[on her sadistic stage mother] She was the real Wicked Witch of the West.
25Hollywood is a strange place if you're in trouble. Everybody thinks it's contagious.
26[MGM] had us working days and nights on end. They'd give us pep-up pills to keep us on our feet long after we were exhausted. Then they'd take us to the studio hospital and knock us cold with sleeping pills . . . Then after four hours they'd wake us up and give us the pep-up pills again so we could work another 72 hours in a row. I started to feel like a wind-up toy from FAO Schwarz.
27Well, we have a whole new year ahead of us. And wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all be a little more gentle with each other, and a little more loving, have a little more empathy, and maybe - next year at this time - we'd like each other a little more.
28How strange when an illusion dies. It's as though you've lost a child.
29[when told by a reporter that she had a large gay following] I couldn't care less. I sing to people!
1Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gumm in Grand Rapids, Minnesota on June 10, 1922, was the youngest child of Ethel Marion (née Milne, b:11.17.1893 - d:01.05.1953, age 69) and Francis Avent "Frank" Gumm (b:03.20.1886 - d:11.17.1935, age 49). Her parents were vaudevillians who settled in Grand Rapids to run a movie theater that featured vaudeville acts. She was of English, Scottish, and Irish ancestry, named after both her parents and baptized at a local Episcopal church. "Baby," as Frances Ethel was called by her parents and sisters, shared her family's flair for song and dance. Her first appearance came at the age of two-and-a-half when she joined her older sisters Mary Jane "Suzy/Suzanne" Gumm (b:09.14.1915-d:04.27.1964; age 48, suicide) and Dorothy Virginia "Jimmie" Gumm (b:07.04.1917-d:04.27.1977; age 59) on stage of her father's movie theater during a Christmas show and sang a chorus of "Jingle Bells." Her two sisters had to drag "Baby" by her arm pits, feet kicking, off the stage because "Baby" wouldn't stop singing "Jingle Bells." The Gumm Sisters performed in their father's Grand Rapids theater for the next few years, accompanied by their mother Ethel on piano. "Judaline" means "little Judy" in Jewish and was originally the endearing nickname given to "Baby" Francis by one of her vaudeville stage directors when she was a child performer. The family relocated to Lancaster, California in June 1926 when Baby Francis was four years old. Frank purchased and operated another theater in Lancaster, and Ethel began managing her daughters vaudeville career and working to get them into the motion picture film industry. Garland attended Hollywood High School and later graduated from University High School. In 1928, all of the Gumm Sisters were enrolled in a Hollywood dance school run by Ethel Meglin, proprietress of the Meglin Kiddies dance troupe. The sisters appeared with the Meglin Dance Kiddies dance troupe at its annual 1928 Christmas show. Through the Meglin Kiddies, the Gumm Sisters made their film debut in a 1929 2-reel Vitaphone-Warner Brothers short film called "The Big Revue." The short musical variety film presents a "musical revue featuring children," primarily girls. The first number has a chorus of girls performing a high kicking dance routine with tambourines, before two soloists, a boy and a girl, take center stage to do a gymnastic dance number. The girls chorus then takes over to perform a synchronized song and tap dance style number. Next, the young female orchestra leader introduces the Gumm Sisters, Mary Jane Suzy/Suzanne, at age 14 (b:1915), Dorothy Virginia "Jimmie," at age 12 (b:1917) and the youngest, 'Baby Judaline" Francis Ethel, at age 7 (b:1922). The three Gumm Sisters sing and dance on stage by themselves, where they performed a song-and-dance number called "That's The Good Old Sunny South." The final number has another chorus of dancing girls performing an Arabian-themed number. This first film appearance was followed by appearances in two Vitaphone-Warner shorts the following year (filmed in 1929, released in 1930): "A Holiday in Story-land" (featuring Garland's first on-screen solo) and "The Wedding of Jack and Jill." The fourth 2-reel 1930 release, filmed in 1929, is a Vitaphone Corporation Warner Brothers' 2-reel musical variety short "Bubbles" which featured costumed children in a land of make believe, which featured The Vitaphone (Meglin) Kiddies and the three Gumm Sisters, Mary Jane "Suzy", Virginia "Jimmie" and Francis "Baby Judaline." The Gumm Sisters appeared during the 1934 Chicago World's Fair Exposition midway and at the Chicago Oriental Theater. Francis, now at age 12, was also featured as a solo act, a single entertainer on an eastern Vaudeville circuit with head-liner comedienne George Jessel acting as an emcee. Jessel encouraged their mother Ethel to choose a more appealing name after "Gumm" was met with laughter from the audience. According to theater legend, their act was once erroneously billed at the Chicago Oriental Theater as "The Glum Sisters." Several stories persist regarding the origin of the name "Garland". One is that it was originated by Jessel after Carole Lombard's character Lily Garland in the film "Twentieth Century," which was then playing at the Chicago Oriental Theater; another is that the girls chose the surname after drama critic Robert Garland. Garland's daughter Lorna Luft stated that their mother Ethel selected the name "Garland" when Jessel announced that the trio of sisters "looked prettier than a garland of flowers." Francis changed her name to Judy soon afterwards, after changing their headline vaudeville family's last name to the "Garland Sisters." Louis B. Mayer asked his MGM studio song-writer Burton Lane and his director/choreographer Busby Berkeley to go downtown Los Angeles's to the movie-vaudeville Broadway (LA main street) Orpheum Theater to watch the Garland Sisters' vaudeville musical act and to report back to him. A few days
2Judy Garland's MGM feature film acting talent and her initial musical career was guided by producer Arthur Freed, the studio's executive developing properties and projects which featured the talented young actress. Arthur Freed was born in Charleston, South Carolina into a musical family (09/09/1894-04/12/1973). He grew up in Seattle, Washington and attended the Phillips Academy in Exeter, New Hampshire. It was here that he began to write poetry. Arthur was a lyricist with his family long before he ever went to Hollywood. His father was a tenor, brother Walter was an organist, brothers Sydney and Clarence went into the recording business in Hollywood and brother Ralph was a songwriter as well. His only sister Ruth also composed songs. The only brother not to go into some sort of music profession was brother Hugo - who became an accountant. In New York City. Freed played piano plugging songs and in the vaudeville theater circuit, working with the Marx Brothers. An ambitious man, Freed began at MGM as a song-writer when the movies first learned to talk. At that time, song-writers were just that, "song-writers" and they were treated as anything much higher that what they were: The people who used to sit on the sets of the silent films playing the piano for "mood music". Freed, along with composer Nachio Herb Brown, penned such classic as "Singin In The Rain," "The Wedding Of The Painted Doll," "Would You," and numerous other hit melodies. But what Freed really wanted to do was produce. Freed was known around the MGM Culver City studio lot as not only ambitious, but also for "kissing the butt" to studio head Louis B. Mayer. The years of begging and pleading finally paid off around 1938, at Freed's age of 43, when Mayer decided to give Freed the job of "Associate Producer" (uncredited) on "The Wizard of Oz." The film was officially being produced by Melvyn LeRoy, Mayer's new protege brought in from Warner Brothers to hopefully replace the "boy wonder" Irving Thalberg, who had died a few years earlier. Controversy has surrounded just whose idea it was to purchase "The Wizard Of Oz" from Samuel Goldwyn. Freed would later claim that he suggested to Mayer that it would make a great musical, and Mayer responded by stating that it was too big of a project for a novice producer. Melvyn LeRoy claimed that when he came to MGM he told Mayer the first film he wanted to make was a fantasy film of "The Wizard Of Oz." Probably, the actual facts favor Freed who first suggested the film musical project. Freed had the musical background, he hired the brilliant Roger Edens as vocal arranger, and he was firmly behind the budding career of the young Judy Galand, whom the MGM studio had signed in 1935 but hadn't done much with her talent. Freed and Edens recognized her potential from the start. The important issue is that Arthur Freed did get to work as Associate Producer, and LeRoy wisely left all of the musical matters to Freed and Edens. Once it was clear "The Wizard Of Oz" would be a smash box office hit, Mayer gave the green light to Freed to produce "Babes In Arms" - beginning the cycle of the now famous "Let's Put On A Show" musicals with Garland and Mickey Rooney. "Babes In Arms" and it's follow up "Stike Up The Band" were enormously popular, relative inexpensive to make, and turned quite a profit for the studio. Freed also intensely promoted the career of Judy Garland - some would say to her detriment - by having her work almost non-stop during this time on the musicals with Rooney, as well as the Andy Hardy films (not produced by Freed) and separate musicals such as "Little Nelly Kelly" and "Ziegfeld Girl" (produced by Pandro S. Belrhnham). The rise of Judy's star also helped Freed's career rise. But Freed had other things in mind aside from just Garland's career. Not content to just adapt films from the New York Broadway stage, as he had done with "Little Nelly Kelly," "Panama Hattie," and "Babes In Arms," Freed wanted to move the movie musical in a new direction. Away from the backstage story-lines and into more natural settings. But he knew he would need the help of the savvy talent working in New York City. Freed went to New York to seek out talent from the Broadway Theatre scene. He signed to the studio scores of talent, ranging from future directors like Vincente Minnelli and Chuck Walters - to musical talents such as Kay Thompson and Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane. He envisioned "My own little Camelot" and that's exactly what he got. With his films currently so popular, both critically and financially, and each one advancing the film musical in various ways, Freed was practically left alone to do pretty much what he wanted. In 1942, at the request of Garland, Freed brought in Gene Kelly to play opposite her in "For Me And My Gal." The film was a huge success and it jump-started the faltering career of Kelly. Freed bought out Kelly's contract with David O. Selznick and so began the career of Gene Kelly. The following ye
3According to her friend June Allyson in her biography, Judy Garland wished for her funerals a white casket. But because there was no coffin in white the funeral services painted one in this color. She also wished everything was yellow and white for her funeral. So was it this way.
4Attendees at Garland's funeral and memorial service on June 27, 1969 at the Frank E. Campbell Chapel included her children Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft, and Joey Luft, ex husbands Sidney Luft and Mickey Deans (Vincente Minnelli was in London shooting On a Clear Day You Can See Forever (1970)), Kay Thompson, Roger Edens, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, Arthur Freed, Garland's sister Virginia Gumm, Mickey Rooney, Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne, Dean Martin, Ray Bolger, Lauren Bacall, Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Peggy Lee, Lana Turner, Gene Kelly, Ann Sothern, June Allyson, Fred Astaire, Burt Lancaster, Betty Comden and Adolph Green Otto Preminger, John Kander and Fred Ebb, Sammy Davis Jr., Jack Benny, Ethel Merman, Freddie Bartholomew, Myrna Loy, Ann Rutherford, Martha Raye and Paula Wayne. James Mason delivered the eulogy and more than 20,000 spectators filed by Garland's casket.
5Married Sidney Luft at Paicines Ranch near Hollister, CA, on June 8, 1952.
6In an eerie twist of fate, she was born in June of 1922 (6/22) and died on June 22 (6/22).
7She was a very active member of the Hollywood Democratic Committee and donated her time and money to many liberal causes (such as the Civil Rights Movement) and political candidates (including Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry Wallace, Adlai Stevenson, John F. Kennedy, and Robert F. Kennedy) for most of her adult life.
8According to her biography on the A&E channel, as a young adult in her early acting career, movie producers had her going to six different doctors for prescription drugs, without any one doctor knowing about the other five. It was this process that led to her addiction.
9Despite popular belief that Shirley Temple was the first choice for the role of Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz (1939), Garland was cast in the role even before pre-production had begun. As early as February 1938, both Variety and columnist Louella Parsons announced that she was cast in the role of Dorothy.
10Returned to work nine months after giving birth to her daughter Liza Minnelli in order to film The Pirate (1948).
11Returned to work eleven months after giving birth to her daughter Lorna Luft in order to film A Star Is Born (1954).
12One of the few actresses to have danced with both Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly in the movies, other actresses that have also done this includes Rita Hayworth, Cyd Charisse, Vera-Ellen, Debbie Reynolds, and Leslie Caron.
13Was in consideration for the role of Sophie MacDonald in The Razor's Edge (1946) but Anne Baxter, who went on to win a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance, was cast instead.
14Adding to her appeal within the gay community, Garland always acknowledged her gay fan base at a time when homosexuality was seldom even discussed. Late in her career and in dire need of money, she even accepted work singing in a New York City gay bar.
15Despite numerous concert and television appearances in the 1960s, Garland remained constantly in debt. This was due in part to then-manager David Begelman embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars from his clients, with Garland chief among them. Begelman even went so far as to claim a Cadilac, presented to Garland for an appearance on The Jack Paar Program (1962) as his own.
16A close friend was Katharine Hepburn, with whom she would regularly stay during her most serious bouts of depression in order to recover.
17Replaced June Allyson in the film Royal Wedding (1951) after she became pregnant, but her failure to report to the set led to her being replaced by Jane Powell.
18Was replaced by Ginger Rogers in the film The Barkleys of Broadway (1949) after being suspended from MGM for her tardiness.
19Did not get on with Lucille Bremer, who played her sister in Meet Me in St. Louis (1944). She thought that Bremer couldn't act and repeatedly tried to have her fired from the film, but to no avail.
20Became good friends with Doris Day on the Warner Bros. lots when she was filming A Star Is Born (1954) at the same time that Day was filming Young at Heart (1954).
21The first film she made after marrying Vincente Minnelli was The Harvey Girls (1946).
22Initially refused to appear in Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) as she had recently begun to portray characters her own age, such as in Presenting Lily Mars (1943), and was tired of playing virginal teenage characters. She later relented after much persuasion and not only did she meet her future husband Vincente Minnelli on set but her performance in the film was also one of her most famous during her MGM years.
23Mentioned in the song "Happy Phantom" by Tori Amos, "Dance in the Dark" by Lady Gaga, and "A Room at the Heartbreak Hotel" by U2.
24She headlined Ford Star Jubilee: The Judy Garland Special (1955)), CBS' first special. She performed many of her standards, including "Get Happy", "Carolina in the Morning" and "The Trolley Song". She and guest David Wayne as tramps performed "A Couple of Swells" from Easter Parade (1948), Wayne doing Fred Astaire's part. After that number, she--still in tramp make-up--closed the show with "Over The Rainbow".
25She performed with her sisters at the 1933-1934 World's Fair in Chicago on the infamous midway (where Sally Rand was the main attraction), more specifically in the Old Mexico Club, where they sold out every night. During their third week at the club, it unexpectedly closed due to an expired liquor license. Judy served as the grand marshal in a parade for the Fair's "Children's Day" in early 1934. It was during their last day in Chicago that Frances Gumm changed her name to Judy Garland during a performance at the Oriental Theater, partly at the advice of George Jessel, who was emceeing.
26Performed two songs in films that won the Academy Award for Best Original Song: "Over the Rainbow" from The Wizard of Oz (1939) and "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe" from The Harvey Girls (1946). Performed four more songs that were nominated: "Our Love Affair" from Strike Up the Band (1940), "How About You?" from Babes on Broadway (1941), "The Trolley Song" from Meet Me in St. Louis (1944), and "The Man That Got Away" from A Star Is Born (1954). Performed others that became standards, including "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" from Meet Me in St. Louis (1944).
27In a performance of "Come Rain Or Come Shine" on her 1963-1964 variety show on CBS TV, though forgetting some of the words and seemingly "out of sync" with the orchestra she still managed to give a quite powerful and memorable performance.
28The only witnesses present at her Las Vegas wedding to David Rose in 1941 were her mother and stepfather.
29Was Matron of Honor at the wedding of actor Don DeFore and Marion Holmes DeFore on February 14, 1942.
30Offered the lead role in The Three Faces of Eve (1957), but turned down the role because the storyline bore too many resemblances to her own personal life. The role was then given to Joanne Woodward who went on to win the Best Actress Oscar for her performance.
31Was close friends with Lauren Bacall, who had once been her neighbor during the 1950s. Had Judy won the 1955 Best Actress Oscar for A Star Is Born (1954), Lauren would have accepted the Oscar statuette on her behalf.
32Betty Asher, who worked on the MGM lots, served as her maid of honor during her wedding to Vincente Minnelli in 1945.
33She only performed "Over The Rainbow" three times during her many television appearances, which spanned 14 years. She performed it on her first TV Special, Ford Star Jubilee (1955) episode, "The Judy Garland Special" in 1955, sang it to her children on The Christmas Edition of her weekly The Judy Garland Show (1963), and on The Mike Douglas Show: Episode dated 12 August 1968 (1968).
34Did not attend the 1955 Academy Awards, where she was nominated as Best Actress for her portrayal of Vicki Lester in A Star Is Born (1954), because she was in hospital after giving birth to her third child and only son Joey Luft.
35Johnnie Ray was best man at her wedding to fifth husband Mickey Deans.
36As a teenager on the MGM lots, she was good friends with Lana Turner and Ann Rutherford.
37Was considered for the role of Careen O'Hara in Gone with the Wind (1939), but the role was eventually given to Ann Rutherford, so Judy immediately began working on The Wizard of Oz (1939), a film which was considered for as early as 1937.
38Had intense fears of flying, horses, and guns.
39The famous theme song David Raksin wrote for Laura (1944) was originally entitled "Judy" in honor of her.
40Gave birth to all three of her children via Caesarean section. She also suffered from postpartum depression after the birth of her two daughters Liza Minnelli and Lorna Luft.
41Born in Grand Rapids, Minnesota and later lived up in Lancaster, California. John Wayne, then attending college at USC, was a neighbor of Judy's.
42Father was movie theater owner Francis 'Frank' Gumm (born 20 March, 1886 - died 17 November, 1935). Mother was Ethel Milne (born 17 November, 1893 - died 05 January, 1953).
43Godfather of her daughter Lorna Luft was Frank Sinatra
44Grandmother of Vanessa and Jesse Richards, children of singer Lorna Luft.
45The godparents of her daughter Liza Minnelli were Ira Gershwin and Kay Thompson

47During her first marriage to David Rose, Judy was forced to undergo an abortion at the insistence of MGM studio head Louis B. Mayer who feared that pregnancy would hurt her good-girl image. The event left her traumatized for the rest of her life.
48Her performance as Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz (1939) is ranked #17 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.
492006: Her performance as Vicki Lester in A Star Is Born (1954) is ranked #72 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Performances of All Time.
50After serving as the music director on her short-lived CBS series, Mel Tormé wrote a vicious tell-all book about his talented but challenging former boss. So frustrated from the experience, his words in "The Other Side of The Rainbow: With Judy Garland on the Dawn Patrol" portrayed Garland as hopelessly drug-addicted, unprofessional and a horror to work with.
51Was pregnant with her first child Liza Minnelli while filming her minor role in Till the Clouds Roll By (1946). In order to hide her pregnant stomach she was hidden behind stacks of dishes while singing "Look For The Silver Lining". She had also recorded a song "Do You Love Me", which was cut before release. Her scenes were directed by her then husband Vincente Minnelli.
52The song "Quiet Please, There's A Lady On Stage" from the stage musical "The Boy From Oz" was written by Peter Allen (Liza Minnelli's former husband) as a tribute to her.
53Is portrayed by Judy Davis and Tammy Blanchard in Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows (2001), by Elizabeth Karsell in James Dean (2001) and by Andrea McArdle in Rainbow (1978).
543/23/90: Pictured on one of four 25¢ USA commemorative postage stamps honoring classic films released in 1939. The stamp shows Judy Garland as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz (1939), along with Toto (portrayed by Terry). The other films honored were Beau Geste (1939), Stagecoach (1939), and Gone with the Wind (1939).
55Was named #8 Actress on The AFI 50 Greatest Screen Legends
56She was voted the 22nd Greatest Movie Star of all time by Premiere Magazine.
57Had weight problems most of her life. Drastic weight fluctuations often affected continuity in her films and can be seen in Words and Music (1948) and Summer Stock (1950).
58When she married Vincente Minnelli, Louis B. Mayer gave her away.
591952: Received a Special Tony Award "for an important contribution to the revival of vaudeville through her recent stint at the Palace Theatre.".
60She was of English, along with some Scottish and Irish, descent.
61Has a special variety of rose named after her. The petals are yellow (Garland adored yellow roses) and the tips are bright red. It took devoted fans almost nine years after her death to find a rose company in Britain interested in naming a rose officially for her, and the Judy Garland rose didn't appear in the US until 1991. Several JG rose bushes are planted outside of her burial crypt, and at the Judy Garland museum in Grand Rapids.
62Her daughter Liza Minnelli was once married to Jack Haley Jr., the son of her The Wizard of Oz (1939) co-star Jack Haley, who played the roles of The Tin Man, in fantasy, and Hickory, after Dorothy awoke from her dream.
63Always had crooked front teeth, for which an MGM dentist fitted her with removable caps to wear in her films, including The Wizard of Oz (1939).
64Groucho Marx called her not winning an Oscar for A Star Is Born (1954), "the biggest robbery since Brink's." Hedda Hopper later reported that her loss to Grace Kelly for The Country Girl (1954) was the result of the closest Oscar vote up till that time that didn't end in a tie, with just six votes separating the two. In any event, it was a heartbreak from which she never really recovered and which has remained a matter of some controversy ever since.
65She was voted the 23rd Greatest Movie Star of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
66Was a member of The International Order of Job's Daughters.
67She experienced financial difficulties in the 1960s due to her overspending, periods of unemployment, owing of back taxes and embezzlement of funds by her business manager. The IRS garnished most of her concert revenues in the late 1960s. Her financial difficulties combined with her erratic behavior due to her drug dependencies helped break up her marriages and estrange her children from her a year before her death.
68She discouraged her children from entering show business, pointing out her financial and health problems resulting from the nature of the entertainment business. Nevertheless, two of her children, Liza Minnelli and Lorna Luft both became entertainers. Her son Joe lives in relative anonymity as a freelance photographer.
69Her soulful and iconic performance of "Over The Rainbow" from The Wizard of Oz (1939) claimed the #1 spot on June 22, 2004 in The American Film Institute's list of "The 100 Years of The Greatest Songs". The AFI board said "Over The Rainbow" have captured the nation's heart, echoed beyond the walls of a movie theater, and ultimately stand in our collective memory of the film itself. It has resonated across the century, enriching America's film heritage and captivating artists and audiences today.
70Favorite actor was Robert Donat (best known for his portrayal of the title character in the film Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939)).
71September 2002: A Los Angeles federal judge barred Sidney Luft from selling the replacement Juvenile Oscar she received for The Wizard of Oz (1939). Luft was also ordered to pay nearly $60,000 to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to end their second lawsuit against him for repeatedly trying to sell the statuette.
72First cousin three times removed of US President Ulysses S. Grant.
731998: Garland's album, "Judy at Carnegie Hall" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
741997: Posthumously awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
75According to singer Mel Tormé, she had a powerful gift of retention. She could view a piece of music once and have the entire thing memorized.
76Liza Minnelli originally wanted Mickey Rooney to deliver Garland's eulogy, but she was afraid that he wouldn't be able to get through it. So James Mason did it instead.
77Her portrayal of Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz (1939) was the inspiration for the character of Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island (1964). (From Kansas, ponytails, lived on a farm with an aunt and uncle...).
78Liza Minnelli said that Judy planned on calling her autobiography "Ho-Hum".
79The day she died, there was a tornado in Kansas.
80Judy heard the same phrase in two movies: For Me and My Gal (1942) and Easter Parade (1948). In both, her love interest (played by Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire, respectively) says this: "Why didn't you tell me I was in love with you?"
81Interred at Ferncliff Cemetery, Hartsdale, New York, USA.
826/27/69: Her funeral was held in Manhattan at the Frank E. Campbell funeral home at Madison Ave. and 81st St., and 22,000 people filed past her open coffin over a 24-hour period. Ex-husband Vincente Minnelli did not attend. James Mason delivered the eulogy. Her body had been stored in a temporary crypt for over one year. The reason for this is that no one had come forward to pay the expense of moving her to a permanent resting spot at Ferncliff Cemetery in Ardsley, NY. Liza Minnelli had the impression that Judy's last husband, Mickey Deans, had made the necessary arrangements but Deans claimed to have no money. Liza then took on the task of raising the funds to have her properly buried. Death was caused by an "incautious self-overdosage of Seconal" which had raised the barbiturate level in her body beyond its tolerance.
83Originally screen-tested and signed to play the main supporting role of Helen Lawson, in Valley of the Dolls (1967). The studio even provided her with a pool table in her dressing room at her request. Eventually she backed out of the film and was ultimately replaced by Susan Hayward. She kept her costume when she walked off the film, and proceeded to wear the sequined pantsuit while performing in concerts around the world. The character of Neely O'Hara in the film was partially based on her own history (with pills, alcohol, and failed marriages). Sadly, it was Garland's real-life pill addiction that contributed to her leaving this film.
84There is surviving footage of Garland performing the lead role of Annie Oakley in Annie Get Your Gun (1950) before she was replaced by Betty Hutton, and this has been included in many documentaries. Undoubtedly, the best is That's Entertainment! III (1994), which for the first time assembled raw unedited footage for two musical numbers and presented them as they would have looked had the film been completed with Garland. Also surviving today are Garland's prerecordings of all songs for the production.
856/12/64: She married Mark Herron, although her divorce from Sidney Luft was not settled. They were married in Mandarin by a Buddhist monk, and the validity of this marriage is not clear.
86Mother of Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft, and Joey Luft.
87Sister of Mary Jane Gumm and Virginia Gumm.
88She was considered an icon in the gay community in the 1950s and 1960s. Her death and the loss of that emotional icon in 1969 has been thought to be a contributing factor to the feeling of the passing of an era that helped spark the Stonewall Riots that began the modern gay rights advocacy movement.
