Judy Garland: Age: 47 | Cause Of Death: POOR MAINTENANCE

(B. Jun 10, 1922 in Grand Rapids, MN D.  Jun 22, 1969, London, England)

Like so many of Hollywood’s most enduring icons, Judy Garland was also among the industry’s most tragic figures. An entertainer from virtually infancy onward, she lived and died in  the intense glare of the spotlight, leaving behind a legacy encompassing not only classic movies and musical   performances but also a catalogue of personal setbacks and career disasters truly horrifying in their sheer number and scope…On June 22 Garland was found dead in her London apartment of an apparently accidental overdose of barbiturates; she was 47 years old.~Jason Ankeny, All-Music Guide
