They’ll tell you at MGM about how brainy, how cultured their Miss Garson is. And she is that. But nothing gets her like a love story. When she started working on “Madame Curie,” her current film, she read every book on that remarkable woman. But what got Greer were Marie Curie’s notes about making jam, notes scribbled in the midst of most scientific reports. “A womanly woman,” sighs Miss Garson, quite unaware that she is also describing herself.
I can’t believe I won’t see your lovely red-head around the pickle factory anymore! Just want you to know that I, for one, will miss you. I know you’ll be much happier wherever you go—whatever you do! God Bless You, Van.
Good-bye letter Greer Garson received from Van Johnson when she left MGM in 1954.
