Greta Garbo

“The Garbo in whom fact and legend meet – the Garbo of the tweed topcoat, the crumpled felt hat, the flat-heeled shoes. And on her face the smile that we too seldom see, lighting up the surrounding territory like a Scandinavian sunrise!”

“Greta Garbo, real name Greta Gustafsson, was born in Stockholm, Sweden, September 18, 1905. She’s 5’ 6” weighs 122lbs, has light brown hair, blue eyes.”
