Born June 10, 1922 in Minnesota, Frances Ethel Gumm, or better known by her adopted stage name, Judy Garland, was born into a family of performers. Judy's parents owned a vaudevillian movie theater where she and her two older sisters would often perform. Judy was just 4-years-old when her family moved to California, and it wouldn't take long for her to become a well-known figure in Hollywood!
In her early career, Judy Garland would share the spotlight singing and dancing with her older sisters, and The Gumm Sisters would make their first film debut in 1929's The Big Revue. Realizing that Gumm wasn't the most attractive stage name to have, the sisters would adopt the surname Garland in the 1930s.
