Bubbles by the million - and a laugh in every bubble spark Greer Garson’s comedy role in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s “Julia Misbehaves.” Co-starred, for the fifth time, with Walter Pidgeon, Miss Garson switches from drama to comedy, portraying the madcap Julia, showgirl who swings from high wire to high society. The all-around cast includes Peter Lawford, Elizabeth Taylor, Cesar Romero, Mary Boland, Nigel Bruce, Reginald Owen and Lucile Watson. Jack Conway directed, with Everett Riskin producing.
“When Greer Garson starts a picture in a bubble bath, that’s news!”
“I’ve always loved the letters I get from fans,” Greer said shortly after her reappearance at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in the winter of 1947. “One note read, ‘Don’t worry Greer, I am writing a Western for you that’s sure to bring you back.’ Well, it wasn’t a Western I wanted after my Humpty-Dumpty. I wanted a rip-snorting comedy to play. No more queens; the queen’s crown had slipped slightly.”
