172 IQ[edit]

This needs sourcing; there are plenty of urban legends positing that various act(ors)(resses) had high IQs.

Indeed; and so does the outlandish (and rather insulting) suggestion that she "played dumb" at the trial about her being a Communist... --babbage (talk) 05:38, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
indeed, indeed —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.127.59.28 (talk) 01:48, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Rather than mentioning IQ, I think at least one anecdote discusses her extraordinary memory.--Jrm2007 (talk) 05:33, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Isn't there a decent biography written that could settle this question? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.71.58.170 (talk) 11:15, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

Holliday a Lesbian?[edit]

It has been reported that Judy Holliday was a Lesbian. The only printed source I could find is the book "Hollywood Gays" by Boze Hadleigh. It stated that she had a significant relationship with a female police officer. 76.124.117.121 (talk) 13:16, 26 February 2008 (UTC)buddmar

According to Hadleigh, everyone you ever heard of was gay. Something more substantial than his gossip and unsubstantiated innuendo is necessary, in my opinion. Even with my own orientation, I find it offensive to read his suggestions that "everyone" in Hollywood is hiding their gayness, but are ready (once they're conveniently dead) to admit it to Hadleigh. Read the Hadleigh article. Monkeyzpop (talk) 14:43, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Not only is everyone in Hollywood homosexual, but, if you read Wikipedia biographies, everyone in the world shares that propensity. The only wonder is that there are so many people in the world.Lestrade (talk) 13:47, 1 June 2008 (UTC)Lestrade

Jonathan Oppenheim[edit]

I feel strongly that the internal link to English physicist Jonathan Oppenheim has nothing to do with Ms. Holliday's son. Thoughts? Patricia Meadows (talk) 07:15, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Also David Oppenheim:

It strikes me as pretty odd to say someone's survived by their ex-husband. Is this usual? Dchudz (talk) 19:49, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

I've seen newspaper obituaries where surviving ex-spouses are listed among the survivors; it can happen if the two persons remained close after the divorce, etc.Maccb (talk) 03:12, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

music co-write credit[edit]

She was credited with co-writing the theme music for the 1965 film version of AThousand Clowns with her long-time partner, baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan. Unfortunately, she died months before the film's release.Maccb (talk) 03:09, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Marriage to Gerry Mulligan[edit]

The article says she and Gerry Mulligan were married. Is there any record for this statement. Everywhere I have looked just lists them as partners. 86.16.153.234 (talk) 18:08, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

She was a Communist![edit]

She was a communist, by trying to `explain' and play dumb, she was lying and covering up the truth to the matter of the fact that she was indeed a Communist or at least a Communist sympathizer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 120.149.122.162 (talk) 14:09, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

And you know this how, exactly, Mr. McCarthy? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 180.172.89.74 (talk) 14:28, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
