One day in 1872, Susie Graham is making beds at her mother's Leaping Rock, Nevada, boarding house. The next day, she's a millionaire's wife. That millionaire is Major Augustus Parkington, a dashing financial buccaneer who sweeps Susie away to a 5th Avenue mansion and a life of privilege and power.
Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon mark the fourth of their eight beloved film pairings with this grand chronicle (featuring sharp Oscar?-nominated* performances from Garson and Agnes Moorehead) that begins with Susie as the 84-year-old family matriarch and flashes back to decades of passion, breakups, reconciliations, losses, laughs, schemes and sacrifices. Epic romance, epic adventure: Mrs. Parkington invites you to share her remarkable life.
Spanning six decades, this epic portrait of the rise and crash of an American dynasty founded on easy money showed the stars at their best. Academy Award Nominations: 2, Best Actress--Greer Garson, Best Supporting Actress--Agnes Moorehead.
