PHOTO OF THE DAY: SHE IS MA DAISY

image

Who would have guessed it. The prim and proper Greer Garson cutting loose with a memorable rendition of Sir Harry Lauder’s ‘She is ma daisy’ from RANDOM HARVEST.
Type casting of course. MGM saw Greer as their flower of British womanhood,a bit straighlaced and meant for costume,historical drama in the main.
Greer’s hits were during the war years,and she was ideal as wife to Mr.Chips, or in Mrs.Miniver,Madame Curie, with Walter Pidgeon as her costar.
But that three minutes of complete contrast in Random Harvest is magical.
