      MP C Greer Garson. Gregory Peck. Donald Crisp. Gladys Cooper. Lionel Barrymore. And not mentioned by anyone, yet --Jessica Tandy as the evil, snooty, entitled socialite. This is one of my very favorites. If they were reading the phone book I would listen to Garson and Peck for hours on end! But they are reading -- and brilliantly performing a well-crafted script unfolding a story of the industrialization in turn-of-the-century American stratified society.
