Biography of Walter Pidgeon, best remembered as Greer Garson’s co-star in eight films including Mrs. Miniver and Madame Curie. It was a long road to stardom for Pidgeon, who began as a singer in the early 1920s before breaking out once and for all in 1941. A beloved Hollywood star since that time.
Like Roddy McDowall I find myself focused on Donald Crisp throughout the Academy Award winning How Green Was My Valley (1941). Labor unrest invades the valley and Crisp’s once stable world changes.
