Greta's so great.  Love her silents.  Saw her recently in Love from 1926 think it was.

I remember years ago I read the book on her by Barry Paris. I adored her. I am a fan since years. But last year I read a book on her relationship to Salka Viertel and then the Karen Swenson book, and gosh, did I grow a dislike for the woman (not the actress or star).

So selfish, cold and rude, and how she used people. You had to play the game like she wanted it, or you were dumped. Never understood that friendship consists of giving and taking.

I always thought Swenson's book is one of the best, as fans praised it so much, but I was very disappointed by it. Not Swenson's fault, I guess. But there were books in which Garbo seemed very different and blessed with a sense of humor. In this one, she was just blah.

My most priced possession I own on Garbo is a mint condition hard cover book SOTHEBY'S The Greta Garbo Collection. which I remember was held April 15 1990. I was lucky enough to view the exhibition a few days before the auction. Viewing her personal items was a dream come true. I wish I could have been at the actual auction back then. In 2004 The MET here in New York held a collection of custumes from the Hollywood stars and one of hers and NORMA SHEARERS custumes took my breath away. Looking through the photos of her Manhattan pad is the next best thing to being in there. I tried in vain to see her in the streets of Manhattan in the 80's with my cousin to no avail. I hope one day Warner video will release the signature collection 2. I want Susan Lenox Her Fall and Rise, Painted Veil, Inspiration, Romance, As You Desire Me etc.

I agree with 'classic passion'. There has been a disappointing response to my Garbo tribute videos so I will not be screening the rest of the series nor a second series of six videos. Regretfully I now intend to leave the group.

Just uploaded my third Garbo tribute video today.

I have just uploaded my second 'Movie Legends' Garbo tribute of a series of six tributes to be released every Thursday. (The first video was uploaded last Thursday for those who missed it).

By the way, the photoplay cover is simply stunning and I love the Ninotchka trailer! And they are so right - only Lubitsch could have made it! Such a brilliant movie and Greta was so fantastic in it!

Thought I'd share the trailer for Ninotchka since it will be playing this coming Tuesday on TCM in the U.S.

Thanks a lot for that picture, it's lovely! Those ruby red lips enchanted me.

On Dave Kehr and “Movies That Mattered”

When I was in the film program at Northwestern University in Chicago, my peers and I were required to read the works of Walter Benjamin, John Berger, Michel Foucault and even Freud, Jung and Marx. The idea was to apply their theories to the cinema to better understand how film worked, or how it related […]

Making the Leap: Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and Talkies

To view The Private Life of Don Juan click here. Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. made his last movie in 1934. The Private Life of Don Juan was, quite accidentally, a fitting farewell to one of the first megastars of the movie industry. It wasn’t clear while filming it that it would be Fairbanks’ last movie but […]

His work throughout the 1950s, and specifically these four films, are not […]
