Nominated three times for an Oscar, Greta Garbo (Swedish-born Greta Lovisa Gustafsson, September 18, 1905 – April 15 1990) was an international movie star and popular culture icon during the 1920s and 1930s. Garbo received an honorary Academy Award in 1954 for her "luminous and unforgettable screen performances." In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked her fifth on their list of the greatest female stars of Classic Hollywood Cinema, after Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, and Ingrid Bergman.
Often mistaken as a recluse, Garbo lived a private life for decades in Manhattan, leaving her apartment frequently for daily walks with companions or alone. She loved to go antique and gallery shopping. She kept a luxurious, tasteful home.
I watched this film the other night. It's not a world-beater, but Anne Bancroft's performance is not be missed. I hope you enjoy it.
