Judy Garland Net Worth: Judy Garland was an American actress, singer and vaudevillian who had a net worth of $20 million dollars. Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gum, is one of the iconic and most tragic actresses of Hollywood´s golden era. Two-year old Frances started performing as she started to speak under the insistence of her mother, Ethel Gumm, who would have her repeatedly sing "Jingle Bell". Later on, Frances and her sister would form a group, "The Gumm Sisters" around 1928. "The Gumm Sisters" later changed their name to "The Garland Sisters"; Frances eventually changed her name to Judy. Ethel, realizing that her daughter was going to be a greater star than her sisters, took Frances out of the sister's act and traveled across the US performing in night clubs, cabarets, theaters and hotels. In 1935, the 13-year-old Judy Garland was signed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer for which she filmed dozens of films. Being referred to as an "ugly duckling" caused her to develop self-confidence issues and had to be reminded all the time of how talented and beautiful she was. The fact that she (along with other young actors) were given amphetamines and barbiturates to keep up with the work frenzy, led to her addiction and later demise. The film that garnered her worldwide fame was "The Wizard of Oz", where she sang her greatest hit: "Above the Rainbow". Judy later left MGM, made several records, went back to theatre, and back to Hollywood. She was nominated for an Academy Award for "Best Actress". She was posthumously awarded Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1997. Her personal life was not the best as she had self-confidence issues, as well as she was addicted to drug and alcohol. Judy married five times, four of which ended in divorce. Judy Garland was found dead at her rented house in Chelsea London on June 22, 1969, twelve days after her 47th birthday.
