Born 10 June 1922, the youngest daughter of Frank Gumm and Ethel Milne, Frances Ethel Gumm would one day become known around the world as Judy Garland, an actress, singer and performer whom Fred Astaire would describe as "the greatest entertainer who ever lived". She was renowned for her voice and perhaps best known for her role as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. Her career as an actress in musical and dramatic roles, as a recording artist and on the concert state would span more than 40 years.
Judy appeared in vaudeville with her two sisters, as The Gumm Sisters, until she was signed to MGM as a teenager. It was during this time she made The Wizard of Oz, as well as more than two dozen films, including nine with Mickey Rooney.
Garland received numerous awards throughout her life, including a Juvenile Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, several Grammys, and a special Tony Award. Posthumously, Judy was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The American Film Institute placed her among the ten greatest female stars in the history of American cinema.
