Greer Garson
 came to prominence late in terms of the norm for Hollywood actresses.

She was in her mid-thirties when she appeared in her first major film, 1939's Goodbye Mr. Chips.

And while it's a good film, if you're a fan you'll most likely be disappointed by the small number of scenes she has in the film.

Greer had a quality and warmth about her that instantly drew audiences to her. She carried herself with warm elegance - almost like royalty, but with a calm humbleness to her demeanor.

She went on to make some of the best films to come out of the 1940's such as Pride and Prejudice, Blossoms in the Dust, Mrs. Miniver, Random Harvest, Madame Curie and The Valley of Decision.

Greer is still tied with Bette Davis as the only two actresses who have receive five consecutive Academy Award Best Actress Nominations - a record that most likely will never be broken.
