Judy Holliday

Biography

American actress and winner of the Oscar for Best Actress in 1950 for her "Born Yesterday." She was usually cast as a perky, dumb blonde. Judy began her association with the theater as a back-stage switchboard operator for Orson Welles's Mercury Theater and made her debut with a cabaret group, "The Revuers." This led to three minor Hollywood films in 1944 and eventual stardom on Broadway as Billie Dawn in "Born Yesterday," in 1946. She repeated the role in hilarious success in the 1950 film version, winning an Academy Award in the process. She went on to display her unique comedy reflections and voice inflection in a number of plays and films before her early demise.

Holliday died of throat cancer 6/07/1965, New York.

Source Notes

LMR quotes Gary Carey, "Judy Holliday," 1982, p.4: "The B.C. in the files of the New York Dept of Health give the date but without a time. Her mother Helen once told a reporter that she went into labor while watching Fanny Brice in a Broadway revue. She went straight from the theater to the hospital where her only child was born shortly therafter...... before midnight on the 21st, which was the opening night of the Follies of 1921."
