Judy made her acting debut in 1963 in the William Castle film 13 Frightened Girls and was on her way. She appeared in such TV shows as Batman, Bewitched an Days Of Our Live before her big break came in 1970 with the film Cotton Comes To Harlem.
But just before that film came into being she was already shaking up the TV and movie business by being the first black female villain on the show called Peyton Place.
The movie world was enamored with Judy's beauty an acting ability in Cotton and soon she was appearing in other movies like Up In The Cellar and, the movie that first introduced me to her sexiness...Frogs.
Judy also starred in the 1972 TV movie Brian's Song and after seeing her in these films I simply fell in love with the woman. I then kept my eyes peeled for anything she was in.
I caught her in episodes of Kung Fu, Medical Center, Sanford and Son, Good Times and much more. I have seen most of her movies including Cool Breeze, the above mentioned Cotton Comes To Harlem, and I still need to catch Three In The Attic, but I will soon. I even caught her on The Dating Game when she was the first black bachlorette ever on the show.
Judy is still busy today and for people like me she will always be a top queen of the movie screen. LONG LIVE JUDY PACE.
