Spotlight: Judy Holliday
Judy Holliday began her career as part of a nightclub act, then appeared successfully on the Broadway stage before going to Hollywood. In the early 1940s, she appeared in three films at 20th Century Films, but was dropped by the studio and return to Broadway.

In 1949, she returned to Hollywood to make Adam’s Rib. It was her next film, Born Yesterday, which made her a star. In the film, she reprised her Broadway role as the intellectually ambitious moll.

In all of her performances, she possessed superb comic timing and quirky charm. I think you will enjoy one of her films from our collection. Other notable films include Bells are Ringing (1960), The Marrying Kind (1952), and The Solid Gold Cadillac (1956).
