The future Broadway star was born in New York on April 29, 1919, the daughter of Norwegian-born Theodore Holm, who worked for the American branch of Lloyd’s of London, and Jean Parke Holm, a painter and writer. She was smitten by the theater as a 3-year-old when her grandmother took her to see ballerina Anna Pavlova. “There she was, being tossed in midair, caught, no mistakes, no falls. She never knew what an impression she made,” Holm recalled years later. She attended 14 schools growing up, including the Lycee Victor Duryui in Paris when her mother was there for an exhibition of her paintings. She studied ballet for 10 years.
