Judy Garland (Frances Ethel Gumm) was born June 10, 1922, in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, USA; she was an American actress, singer, and entertainer, mother of Liza Minnelli.

Judy Garland was a child star in the 1930s, peaking in the musical The Wizard of Oz (1939), where she launched her signature song "Over the Rainbow."

As an adult, Garland starred in the musical classics Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) and Easter Parade (1948).

After some years of personal and health problems, she made a big comeback in A Star Is Born (1954) and showed character talent in a completely different role as a Nazi victim in Judgment at Nuremberg (1961).
