Book Description“Here was a siren who had depth, strength, dignity, and humour who could inspire great trust, suggest deep intellect and whose misty languorous eyes melted your heart away!” remarked co-star Christopher Plummer.

In the darkest days of World War II, Greer Garson was Hollywood’s most inspiring icon of strength and courage. Her work in Mrs. Miniver was rewarded with an Academy Award in 1941.

Garson earned a total of seven Academy Award nominations for Best Actress. Fourteen of her films premiered at Radio City Music Hall, playing for a total of eighty-four weeks—a record never equaled by any other actress.

She worked with such legendary performers as Clark Gable, Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, Errol Flynn, Joan Crawford, Robert Mitchum, Debbie Reynolds, and Walter Pidgeon. Garson’s memories of them, and their comments about her, provide an incomparable view of Hollywood at its most influential and creative peak.

Michael Troyan sweeps away the many myths that even today veil Garson’s life in the first-ever biography of the star. With the benefit of exclusive access to studio production files, personal letters and diaries, and the cooperation of her family, he explores the triumphs and tragediesof her personal life, a story more colorful than any role she played on screen.
