Description by OLDIES.com:

Beautiful, breathtaking Irene Forsyte: Men adore her. Women envy her. Love defines her. Errol Flynn and Greer Garson head this lush costume drama - based on the first book of John Galsworthy?s The Forsyte Saga - about a woman who cannot cut her free spirit to fit the cloth of Victorian society. Originally slated for one of the romantic leads in the film, Flynn opted instead to play against type. He fought for the part of Soames Forsyte, Galsworthy?s stuffy, imperious "man of property." As Soames, Flynn "revealed an unsuspected and admirable talent for characterization," recalled an impressed Garson, who played Irene. "If he had lived longer... he probably would have emerged as the serious actor he longed to be." See Flynn in one of his favorite roles, a milestone in his celebrated film legacy.

Product Description:

An adaptation of John Galsworthy's novel about a faithless woman who finds herself attracted to her niece's fiance.

Plot Synopsis:

Errol Flynn and Greer Garson star in this adaptation of book one of John Galsworthy's noted Victorian-era novel "The Forsyte Saga."
Garson plays Irene, a music teacher who becomes part of the wealthy Forsyte clan by wedding the calculating, cold-hearted Soames Forsyte. Although Soames virtually bribed Irene into marrying him, he never quite manages to buy her love, and after two years she falls for Philip Bosinney -- fiancé of the young June Forsyte. But this union is not to be, and surprisingly Irene's connection to the Forsytes will not be severed.
