Icons: Judy Garland
When this picture was taken in 1963, Judy Garland was riding high. She had gone from career purgatory in the late 1950s to an amazing resurgence which lead to her being widely considered the world's greatest living entertainer. She played sold-out concerts all over the globe, her Judy at Carnegie Hall album topped the record charts and won the Grammy for record of the year, she was nominated for an Oscar for her role in Judgement at Nuremberg and she had just signed a contract with CBS to host The Judy Garland Show. After that everything seemed to go wrong. Six years later she was gone.
