Judy Garland's Birthday: Legendary Actress Would Have Turned 91 Today

Legend of the silver screen Judy Garland was born on this day in 1922. The actress and singer, who captivated generations of theater-goers with "A Star Is Born," "Judgement At Nuremburg," and of course the groundbreaking film "The Wizard Of Oz," would have been 91 years old.

She was posthumously awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award in 1999, and AFI ranks the star as one of the top 10 actresses of all time. Garland died in 1969 from an accidental drug overdose at the age of 47.
