Profile:
Judy Holliday (June 21, 1921 – June 7, 1965) was an American actress, comedian and singer.

Holliday began her show business career in 1938 as part of a night-club act called The Revuers. The other four members of the group were Betty Comden, Adolph Green, Alvin Hammer and John Frank. The Revuers played engagements at various New York night clubs including the Village Vanguard, Spivy's Roof, Blue Angel, Rainbow Room, and Trocadero in Hollywood, California. The group disbanded in early 1944.

Her success in the 1946 stage production of Born Yesterday as "Billie Dawn" led to her being cast in the 1950 film version.
She won the Academy Award for Best Actress and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in 1950.
She appeared regularly in films during the 1950s. She was noted for her performance on Broadway in the musical Bells Are Ringing.
She won the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical, and reprised her stage role in the 1960 film.

Holliday recorded two studio albums (not including her film and Broadway soundtracks) during her lifetime.
Trouble Is A Man (1958)
Holliday With Mulligan (1961, but not released until 1973)

In 1948 Holliday married clarinetist, and later classical music and television producer and academic David Oppenheim, with whom she had a son, film editor Jonathan Oppenheim, before the couple divorced in 1958. She reportedly had a long-term relationship with jazz musician Gerry Mulligan, but the two never married.
