Judith Wood was an American film actress from the end of the 1920s through the 1940s. Born as Helen Johnson in New York City, Wood moved to Hollywood, California to pursue an acting career in the late 1920s. Her first role was in the 1929 film Gold Diggers of Broadway. In that first film, as well as in the four she would star in during 1930, Wood would be credited under her birth name of "Helen Johnson". Her first film of 1931 was It Pays to Advertise, which starred Carole Lombard. It would be the last film in which she would be billed under "Helen Johnson", and thereafter all of her film credits would be under the name "Judith Wood". In 1931, she was selected as one of thirteen girls to be "WAMPAS Baby Stars", along with actresses Marian Marsh, Karen Morley, Marion Shilling, and Barbara Weeks, among others. Wood starred in six films in 1931, after which her career slowed to a crawl, and eventually faded out. She starred as Kitty Packard in the original Broadway production of Dinner at Eight but the film version went to Jean Harlow. In 1934 she only received three film roles, one of which was uncredited.
