TriviaDespite her image as a "dumb blond", she had an IQ of 172. She often said that it took a lot of smarts to convince people that her characters were stupid. According to biographer Gary Carey, in its search for subversives in the film industry, the House Un-American Activities Committee was flummoxed by Holliday. She essentially playing her Billie Dawn character on the witness stand. She ended up being the only person ever called before HUAC who was neither blacklisted nor compelled to name names. An only child. Son, Jonathan Oppenheim was born November 11, 1952 and is now a film editor. Dated Nicholas Ray in 1944. To help build up Holliday's image, particularly in the eyes of Columbia Pictures chief Harry Cohn, Katharine Hepburn deliberately leaked stories to the gossip columns suggesting that her performance in Adam's Rib (1949) was so good that it had stolen the spotlight from Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. This got Cohn's attention and Holliday won the part in Born Yesterday (1950). Following her divorce, she became involved with jazz musician Gerry Mulligan. After learning she had breast cancer and stopped filming, she began writing songs with him. He wrote the music and she wrote the lyrics. . Some of these songs appear on the album "Holliday With Mulligan" which they recorded together in 1961. It was not released until 1980.
