Brittle comedy, her forte - Although Greer Garson, English stage star, plays a thoroughly feminine role as Mrs. Chips in the new MGM picture “Goodbye, Mr. Chips”, she likes to play comedy, and brittle comedy when she gets a chance. Here she is shown with her mother, Mrs. Nina Garson at their Beverly Hills, Calif. cottage. And that is Rama Dhipati IV, Greer’s siamese cat which Mrs. Garson is holding.
"Super-star." is the tag that is usually added to the name of this film actress, Claudette Colbert. An Academy Award winner early in her screen career, she’s the star who switches from comedy to drama - from flighty ingenues to tender mothers, and shady ladies to patriotic heroines. Seldom ruffled, she had enough energy for half a dozen stars, and is usually reading scripts of pictures lined up for her while still busy on a current film. Hollywood’s best feminine skier, Claudette is the wife of Dr. Joel Pressman, to whom she has been happily wed since 1935.
