An Oscar-winning actress known for portraying strong women with warmth and poise, Garson made her screen debut in Louis B. Mayer's Good-bye, Mr. Chips (1939) opposite Robert Donat. Nominated seven times for her performances, she won an Oscar for her role in Mrs. Miniver (1942). Her other films include Pride and Prejudice (1940), Blossoms in the Dust (1941), Random Harvest (1942), Madame Curie (1943), and Mrs. Parkington (1944), often working with Walter Pidgeon. She moved on to Broadway, replacing Rosalind Russell in Auntie Mame, then went back to films in Sunrise at Campobello (1960) as Eleanor Roosevelt. In her later years, she made several television appearances, produced a few plays, and engaged in philanthropic endeavors with her wealthy husband, oil magnate Buddy Fogelson.
I salute her work with my tribute - Greer Garson - Ethereal Elegance.
