Judy Garland’s Birthday (1922)

Judy Garland's Birthday

Judy Garland was born Frances Ethel Gumm in Minnesota in the summer of 1922. In 1935, she signed her first contract with MGM studios after Louis B. Mayer, the head of the studio, saw her perform on stage with her sisters. Judy was quickly brought into the studio system, going to school with stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Ava Gardner. Judy became a huge star thanks to a series of comedies with comedian Mickey Rooney and would later have iconic roles in The Wizard of Oz, Meet Me in St. Louis and A Star is Born.
