No need to worry about “Auntie Mame.” However Greer Garson’s characterization may differ from or be similar to Rosalind Russell’s original, “Auntie Mame” remains “Auntie Mame,” The frenzied change of costumes and wigs demanded of the actress endeavoring to get through the evening as Auntie Mame never intrudes upon Miss Garson’s tranquility or spirited romping, whichever the scene may at the moment demand. From strawberry blonde and lounging pajamas of the opening cocktail party, to silver gray and sari of the close, Miss Garson is in personal command of herself, her performance and the play. Knowing that a tour de force is demanded, she presents one, her own, and it’s good. In fact, it’s extremely pleasant to see Miss Garson in something other than her screen personality. At the Broadhurst, she is an actress of verve, style, chorus girl bite, a comedienne of perfect timing and extraordinary energy. No “Mrs. Miniver” this, and vive la difference. - Variety February 26, 1958

“There have been two roses named for me, one, the Mrs. Miniver, and the other, Greer Garson. Now as you’d expect, the Mrs. Miniver behaves properly and blooms beautifully, in true size and color, season after season. The Greer Garson, bloomed all over the place with terrific splendor. Next season, it sprawled around, put out a few off blooms, and relaxed. I sometimes wonder if the rose growers really made a true estimate of the both of us.”

"If they meant, by ‘lady,’ the sort of feminine creature who refrains from smacking people on their kissers, I wouldn’t have an objection in the world. But the Greer Garson Lady is something just too-too, with a halo of nobility. She’s all wrapped up in cellophane. Her petticoats rustle when she moves and her little finger curves off from her teacup. A stuffy piece of bric-a-brac—out of this world. I’d like to take her by the scruff of her neck and drop her neatly into the Pacific Ocean!” - Greer Garson, 1942

Charming Greer Garson - The Irish actress with the red hair and green eyes is one of Hollywood’s loveliest newcomers. Firmly established in the hearts of movie goers as a result of her gentle performance of “Mrs. Chips” in “Goodbye, Mr. Chips,” Miss Garson is soon to be seen in her first American picture, “Remember,” Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer picture starring her opposite Robert Taylor, with Lew Ayres in a leading supporting role. In the film, she plays a modern girl, which she is, as this snapshot proves.

Sporting a very “English” mustache, Richard Ney, seen with his screen star-wife, Greer Garson, pauses at the edge of the Mocambo dance floor to chat with a news-photographer. The lip adornment which Ney raised for a role in a recent picture apparently pleased his wife. Greer agreed that it was becoming to her handsome husband.
