Judy Garland The Dressing Of a Legend : Judy returned to the screen as well, winning a best actress Oscar nomination for A Star Is Born (Warner Bros./1954).

@allmusic : But unlike most other film stars of her era, she also maintained a career as a recording artist, and after her movie-making days were largely over, she was able to transfer her stardom to performing and recording, culminating in her Grammy-winning number one album Judy at Carnegie Hall.
