Happy 108th Birthday Eileen Evelyn Greer Garson | 29 September, 1904 - 6 April, 1996

Greer Garson is known to a generation or more largely in the histories of a Hollywood that already seems, a half century after her great successes, almost as remote as the silents. It is too bad—and the generation’s loss—because Greer Garson brought grace, wit, elegance, charm and a lively Irish vigor to a place and an industry. The films she made were of their day—the wartime fervor of Mrs. Miniver, the powerful sentiment of Random Harvest and Blossoms in the Dust. But there was a lot to be said for the films of that day—and their messages of courage, caring and optimism—and, gifted actress that she was, Greer Garson gave the messages the ring of truth.
