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.
