Judy Holliday (June 21, 1921 - June 7, 1965) was an American actress. Born Judith Tuvim in New York City, she began her career on the stage. Her first movie was Greenwich Village in 1944. She had a few more minor roles, before moving back to New York and the stage.
Holliday was called to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee to "explain" her Communist links, but the appearance did not blackball her career, unlike the cases of others in the movie business.
In 1965 she died from breast cancer.
She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6901 Hollywood Blvd.
