Greer Garson was born in London, England on September 29, 1904. Originally planning to become a teacher, Ms. Garson opted for a job at an advertising agency. While performing in local theatrical productions she gained a reputation for being extremely talented. Apparently, Louis B. Mayer agreed and signed her to a contract at MGM Studios. Her first American film was the classic, GOODBYE, MR. CHIPS for which she received her first of 7 Academy Award nominations. She followed that with PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and BLOSSOMS IN THE DUST. In 1942 Ms. Garson struck Oscar gold winning the Best Actress Award for her performance in MRS. MINIVER. In a publicity shot for one of her films she stopped the show with this dazzling canary ring.
