Greta Garbo: The Enigmatic Star

Hello, my name's Toni and I am 18 years old. I deeply love classic movies, but this blog is specifically dedicated to Greta Garbo. She was such a phenomenal actress and a great beauty. Her secrecy and enigma have created such mystery. I hope this blog does justice to her. September 18th, 1905 - April 15th, 1990

Greta Garbo, 1930

"I’m convinced she was never bored. What she enjoyed most was being alone with her own thoughts and inner dialogues. She had no other greater ambition because she’d achieved them all by the time she was thirty-five—she was the most famous, beautiful, and accomplished woman of her time. But she paid the price by losing her privacy, which was the one thing she wanted—just to lead a decent, healthy, honest life out of the public eye. It wasn’t Two-Faced Woman that made her quit movies. It was about personal development. From the age of seventeen, she’d done nothing but work, and her huge success came before she’d had time to develop an emotional life. In the end, her emotional life was more important.” 
-Sam Green, companion of Garbo’s
