Judy Garland Net Worth
Judy Garland Net Worth: Judy Garland was an American actress, singer and vaudevillian who had a net worth of $20 million dollars at the time of her death (adjusted for inflation). Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gum, was one of the most iconic actresses of Hollywood's golden era. Judy started performing at a very early age. When she was two years old, Judy older sisters on stage at their father's movie theater during Christmas, to sing "Jingle Bells". Later on, Frances and her sisters would form a group, "The Gumm Sisters". "The Gumm Sisters" later changed their name to "The Garland Sisters". Frances eventually changed her name to Judy. Her mother, realizing that Judy was going to be a greater star than her sisters, took Judy 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 to appear in dozens of films. Being referred to as an "ugly duckling" caused her to develop self-confidence issues. She had to be reminded all the time of how talented and beautiful she was by friends and family. 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 Judy worldwide fame was "The Wizard of Oz", in which she sang her greatest hit "Over 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 drugs 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.
