Greer Garson is most known for her role in Mrs. Miniver, and was quickly given more roles like it. The dramatic roles however while stretching acting muscles and winning her awards did nothing for her comic genius. She gets snarky, and sarcastic with Lawrence Olivier in Pride and Prejudice, and silly and acrobatic in Julia Misbehaves with Walter Pidgeon. Having not come to Hollywood until her thirties, Garson was quick to be placed in grown up roles, but gosh how we just love the ridiculously fun roles instead. Make sure to grab one of her comedies to see what you’ve been missing.
Happy Birthday Greer.
