Hotel Iris (later the St. Moritz) on Sunset Blvd where Judy Garland and family stayed on vacation in 1926.

The Hotel Iris (later the St. Moritz) on Sunset Boulevard – it’s where Judy Garland (back then, of course, her name was still Frances Gumm) and her family stayed on vacation in 1926. Judy’s very first performance in Los Angeles, was at the Earlanger’s Mason Theatre on July 10, 1926 during an afternoon kidee’s matinee of Topsy and Eva with the Duncan sisters. It was during this trip that the Gumms decided to move to California, soon after settling in in the town of Lancaster, north of Los Angeles.

    I live at the St Moritz. This is where Judy Garland lived when on vacation. Then her name was Frances Ethel Gumm and at that this was the Iris Hotel.
