Greer Garson's Technicolor Screentest For Blossoms In The Dust (1941)

Greer Garson appears in Technicolor for the first time in her screen test for Blossoms In The Dust (1941).

I think there should have been a law created when this screen test came out that no Greer Garson film was ever to be made in black and white - only Technicolor for this redhead! She looks so perfect in Technicolor and her performance in 1941's Blossoms In The Dust is no less than mind-blowing. She had conveyed such emotion in her previous films, and this screentest just proves that she can make the same effect in glorious Technicolor. I got hold of this footage on my Warner Brothers DVD copy of The Shop Around The Corner in a documentary named "A New Romance Of Celluloid: The Miracle Of Sound". So if you already own this fabulous James Stewart and Maureen Sullivan movie, The Shop Around The Corner, take a look on the special features menu and watch this interesting documentary voiced by Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy and catch a glimpse of this stunning screen test.
