A Centennial Tribute to Greta Garbo
Probably no other star in the history of Hollywood has been wrapped in so much mystery as Greta Garbo. Her fans worship her. Many newer moviegoers don't even know about her, for a number of reasons. Many of her films were silent, and some are no longer available. All were black and white. She ended her career prematurely. There are rumors, perhaps intentionally encouraged by her, regarding her sexual orientation. But what remains of her legacy is marvelous, and there's plenty of material on the Web that will help new fans learn more about her. Greta Garbo was born in Stockholm, Sweden on September 18, 1905, as Greta Lovisa Gustafsson. Her father died when she was 14, and she had to work to help support her family. But that may have been a pivotal moment in her career, because her appearances in advertising for the department store where she worked resulted in a role in a film, which in turn caused her to attend a drama school in Sweden. By the age of 18 she was on her way to stardom, and by 1925, off to Hollywood.

Greta Garbo was an enigmatic superstar of silent films and early Hollywood "talkies" until her surprising retirement at age 36. She was discovered in Sweden and moved to America under contract to MGM Studios, where she played aloof, dramatic beauties in films like Flesh and The Devil (1926) and Mysterious Lady (1928). She became a star and made the transition to talking pictures: Anna Christie (1930) was promoted with the famous tag line "Garbo Talks!" In the 1930s she played doomed title characters like Mata Hari (1932) and Anna Karenina (1935) and was a pensive ballerina in the 1932 Oscar-winner Grand Hotel, where she uttered the famous line "I want to be alone." She changed styles a bit for the 1939 Ernst Lubitsch satire Ninotchka, playing a drab Soviet envoy transformed by a Parisian romance. She stopped making films in 1941, refused all attempts to lure her back to Hollywood, and settled in New York City. Source:

a biography of Greta Garbo
Sweden: The Early Years
  • Garbo Signature Collection UK 6 Dvd Boxset
  • New Garbo ... Amazon UK Store Greta Garbo was born Greta Lovisa Gustafsson on September 18, 1905. Garbo was born in Stockholm to poor parents. She was 14 when her father died, leaving the family destitute. Consequently, Greta was forced to leave school and go to work, first as a lather girl in a barbershop, then as a clerk in a department store. The store also used her for her modeling abilities for newspaper ads. She had no film aspirations until she appeared in an advertising short at that same department store while she was still a teenager. This led to another short film when Eric Petscher, a comedy director, saw the film. He gave her a small part in the film, Peter The Tramp (1920). From 1922 to 1924 she studied at the Royal Dramatic Theatre, Stockholm. During that period met Mauritz Stiller, the foremost Swedish director, who gave her an important role in Gösta Berlings Saga (1924; "The Story of Gösta Berling"), gave her the stage name Greta Garbo, and trained her in cinema-acting techniques.
    The Hollywood Years In 1925, when Stiller went to the United States to work for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, he insisted that Garbo be given a contract also.

    Anna Christie , was promoted with the ad tag "Garbo talks." Later, the poster for Ninotchka proclaimed: "Garbo laughs!" And in 1954, 13 years after her last movie, Guinness World Records named the elusive Swedish star "the most beautiful woman who ever lived." Though she shied away from celebrity, Garbo was romantically linked to many well-known names, including actor John Gilbert, poet Mercedes de Acosta, and photographer Cecil Beaton. To mark the 100th anniversary of her birth, an exhibition of photographs from her private collection by the likes of Edward Steichen and George Hurrell, entitled Garbo's Garbos, opens at New York's Scandinavia House on September 17. Plus, the U.S. Postal Service, in conjunction with Sweden's national mail carrier, is issuing a 37-cent portrait stamp of the enigmatic actress. So much for being left alone.

    A charismatic, frightened young woman haunted by her Viking homeland. A breathtakingly beautiful, supremely talented actress under the spell of a jealous and possessive director. A movie goddess who left Hollywood at the height of her fame, drifting in a self-created exile she often bitterlythough privatelyregretted. A 20th Century Sphinx whose complex personality has never been completely revealed. Until now. Greta Garbo: A Life Apart is the first comprehensive biography to fully capture Greta Garbo's hidden personal life, as well as her role as a film icon, from a female perspective. Brimming with rare photos and startling new informationbased on unpublished personal letters and conversations with Garbo's closest friends, co-workers and lifelong associates A Life Apart dramatically deconstructs the myriad misconceptions surrounding the actress' life. Author Karen Swenson finally unmasks the woman behind the myths, and presents us with the definitive biography of the century's most enigmatic star. Intimate, compelling and often harrowing, this is the true story of an extraordinary woman who lived two lives: one for the camera, the other intensely private and perpetually apart.

She was probably the most beautiful woman on screen ever with only Elizabeth Taylor coming close to matching her beauty on film. The camera loved her and she radiated beauty from every frame of film. Her mysterious personality also led to her allure and made her even more desirable. To this day, people love and idolize Garbo and I hope you enjoy this site dedicated to her memory.
