    It seems impossible to get way from MRS. MINIVER. Greer did lovely work
    in so many films but seemed so perfect for the MINVER sagas.

  • John

    The perfection of her acting is a combination of her dialogue delivery, facial expressions and body language. She’s one beautiful and exceptional actress!

  • Randomfan

    It has to be Random Harvest. That moment when you hear her voice saying: ‘You are from the asylum, aren’t you?’ It’s sublime.

  • kenR

    ….Mike. Just shows the shame of the ignorant west. “There are none so blind….”

    Greer Garson was so special, too special to pick just one role in one movie.
    I could not vote, too many greats to pick from.

    • MIKE MALFI

      I AGREE 100%. BUT I FIND IT INFURIATING AND SAD THAT KIDS TODAY CAN’T SEE THAT BEAUTIFUL 1/2 HOUR FILM WITH THAT GREAT LADY’S VOICE ALONE BRINGING TEARS TO YOUR EYES. WHO TODAY HAS HER CLASS , OR THAT OF LORETTA YOUNG, ETC.,WHO ?

  • androphiles

    She was simply one of the most ravishingly beautiful women in films, and nowhere moreso than in Random Harvest.

  • Cara

    Random Harvest is one of my all time favorite movies. I first saw it on TCM and had to own it. I’ve watched it countless times since. I love her in Pride and Prejudice and Goodbye Mr. Chips, but she was made to play Paula in Random Harvest.

  • Bruce Reber

    I voted for Greer garson as Kay Miniver, keeping her family together through the early days of WW2.

  • Paul M.

    Definitely Random Harvest. When she cries into her hand “Oh Smithy…” And drops the necklace, it breaks me every time.

  • Joseph23006

    This was a tough one, except for the ‘Singing Nun’ I liked everyone of her pictures. I chose Paula because it gave her a chance to do more than act, it gave her the chance to be seen singing for the troops and having a good time doing it.

  • John Fraraccio

    Can’t rightly judge if it should be her best performance, but a recent introduction to her performance as Marie Curie certainly got my attention, as did that of Walter Pidgeon, if only because I’d half-expected the Minivers in lab smocks and was proved quite wrong by both actors from the get-go. In her final scene with Professor Perot try to take your eyes off her…she doesn’t take her unblinking eyes off YOU.

      My favorite too…

  • Patricia

    Love Garson. She was to me the .elegant woman and a true lady. I have always admired her even as a child. She brings truth and warmth to all the character that I have seen. Whatever happened to that era of glamour, what a shame we no longer have someone like Garson to emulate.
