Detailed item info
Greer Garson stars in the true story of Edna Gladney, who struggled tirelessly to bring hope, dignity, and homes to thousands of unwanted orphans. Edna enjoys a happy marriage to a loving husband, heaping love on her small son, whose birth has made her barren. When the boy dies, Mr. and Mrs. Gladney devote themselves to charity work. But Edna's world completely falls apart when her husband also dies suddenly. These losses, together with Edna's memory of her sister's suicide after learning that she herself was adopted and illegitimate, inspire Edna to help find caring parents for foundlings. She also leads a successful crusade in the Texas state senate to remove the word "illegitimate" from birth records so that these children would not be stigmatized. Garson's performance in front of the Senate is unforgettable, and Edna's heroic story remains inspirational. Director Mervyn LeRoy's outstanding drama also stars Walter Pidgeon; the screenplay was written by Anita Loos.
