Greer Garson (1904-1996) was a London-born actress popular from the 1940s through the 1960s. Her red-gold hair, delicate complexion, and twinkling hazel eyes marked her out as both a high-toned English lady ''and'' an approachable girl-next-door type. After having played supporting roles in classical plays in the very earliest days of television (circa 1937), Garson was cast by [[Creator/MetroGoldwynMayer MGM]] in the [[StarMakingRole leading part]] of Kathie in ''[[Film/GoodbyeMrChips Goodbye, Mr. Chips]]''. She sparkled as Elizabeth Bennet opposite [[Creator/LaurenceOlivier Sir Laurence Olivier]]'s Mr. Darcy in MGM's production of ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'', but perhaps her best-remembered part is as the dauntless English lady facing the Nazi Blitz in ''Film/MrsMiniver'', a part she would reprise eight years later. (Garson, in her early 40's, created a minor scandal at the height of her career, by marrying the much younger actor who played her ''son'' in ''[[Film/MrsMiniver Mrs. Miniver]]''!) She played Caesar's wife, Calpurnia, in the well-regarded Joseph Mankiewicz production of ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar'', and ended her film career as the aristocratic "Mother" of [[Creator/{{Disney}} Walt Disney]]'s ''The Happiest Millionaire''.

'''Greer Garson''' (1904-1996) was a London-born actress popular from the 1940s through the 1960s. Her red-gold hair, delicate complexion, and twinkling hazel eyes marked her out as both a high-toned English lady ''and'' an approachable girl-next-door type.
