Teresa Wright (Performer) | Playbill

Teresa Wright


When Hollywood came to call soon after, in the form of producer Samuel Goldwyn, Ms. Wright quickly made her mark, winning Academy Award nominations for her first three films: 1941's "The Little Foxes" (in which she played Bette Davis' daughter) and 1942's "The Pride of the Yankees" (as Lou Gehrig's wife) and "Mrs. Miniver." She won the prize for the latter flick, a melodramatic, but highly popular Greer Garson vehicle, about the bravery of English women in the face of the coming conflict. Wright played the plucky young woman who marries the son of Garson's Mrs. Miniver.
