More information

Liza Minnelli was born to Vincente Minnelli and Judy Garland. Born into a family well known to film-goers, Minnelli has a maternal lineage that can claim entertainers going back six generations. Her mother, Judy Garland, had success in film and in music, but started in show-business as part of a vaudeville act with Minnelli's aunts as "The Gumm Sisters". Her father, an acclaimed MGM film director, was from a theatrical family which also included circus performers.



Minnelli attended New York City's Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. Her first performing experience on film was at age three where she appeared in the final scene of the 1949 musical In the Good Old Summertime. The film starred Judy Garland and Van Johnson. Although Minnelli and her mother shared a warm personal relationship, during her performances with her mother at the London Palladium, Garland recognized Minnelli's talent and felt a sense of competition. Minnelli recalled, "I was onstage with my mother, but suddenly, she wasn't Mama ... she was Judy Garland."
