Judy Garland was one of the most iconic stars of the Golden Era of Hollywood. She first captured our imaginations (and to this day) in The Wizard of Oz. She was a born entertainer and her memorable voice and stage presence made her an undeniable star. Although tragedy surrounded much of her life, she still held her head high and was very well one of the most interesting personalities of her time.
