Pidgeon's films with Greer Garson:

A still with Clinton Rosamond and Greer Garson in BLOSSOMS IN THE DUST (1941), the first of the eight feature films in which Pidgeon and Garson co-starred together. Pidgeon plays husband to Garson as she founds an orphanage in this film which was nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture.

Memorable Quotations:

  • "You're trying to mend a broken heart by hitting it with a hammer." --as Sam Gladney in BLOSSOMS IN THE DUST (1941).
  • "Fortunately our country always manages to survive patriots like you." --as the Senate Majority Leader in ADVISE AND CONSENT (1962).

Pidgeon and Garson with Teresa Wright in William Wyler's MRS. MINIVER, the Best Picture of 1942. Pidgeon received a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his performance as Clem Miniver in this, one of my favorite films.

A poster from their sixth co-starring film together, MGM's THAT FORSYTE WOMAN (1949), adapted from the John Galsworthy novel about a woman who finds herself attracted by her niece's fiancé.  Incidentally, out of the eight films in which Garson and Pidgeon co-starred (their ninth feature film appearance together being cameos in THE YOUNGEST PROFESSION (1943)), THAT FORSYTE WOMAN marked the only time they did not play a husband-and-wife team.
