Judy Garland

Judy Garland, 1946

It was the centenary of Judy Garland’s birth last week. Born Frances Ethel Gumm on June 10, 1922, Garland is probably best known for playing the part of Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz. By the time of her death in 1969, Garland had appeared in more than 35 films and won multiple awards. She was photographed in 1946, a year which saw Karsh photograph other icons of screen and stage such as Ingrid Bergman, Humphrey Bogart, Angela Lansbury, and Boris Karloff.
