At first, Judy appeared in a bunch of movies with Mickey Rooney, another young actor. Judy and Mickey were very popular – they were seen as a cute young couple. Judy’s big break came in 1939 when she starred as Dorothy in TheWizardOfOz! The movie was a huge hit and Judy won an Oscar for her performance! Judy would go on to star in tons of movies like Meet MeInStLouis and Easter Parade. She recorded best-selling albums, performed on stages all over the world and filmed TV specials. Sadly, Judy died in 1969 leaving behind three children: Liza, Lorna and Joseph.
