Film 101 – Cinema Greats 23: Greta Garbo

Born in Stockholm, Sweden, on Sept. 18, 1905

Birth Name: Greta Lovisa Gustafsson Ht. 5’ 7½’’ Died: 15 April, 1990

Greta Garbo’s father died when she was only 14 which caused her to seek work to help her mother and siblings. She worked in a department store and was used in ads and a film commercial. Her appearance caught the attention of director Erik Petschler who used her in a short comedy. From here, Garbo enrolled in The Royal Dramatic Theatre’s Acting School and was soon signed by Mauritz Stiller for The Saga of Gosta Berling (1924). The following year she starred in G.W. Pabst’s German film The Joyless Street. Louis B. Mayer saw the potential of Garbo and signed her for The Temptress (1926) which led to many more films with MGM. Her first talkie Anna Christie (1930) gained her the first of four Academy Award nominations. As her star rose, ‘Garbomania’ struck at her premieres with throngs of fans waiting to see her films. Her final film was Two-Faced Woman (1941) directed by George Cukor. She retired in 1949 at the age of 44 and became a U.S. citizen in 1950. She never married but was romantically involved with John Gilbert, her co-star in four films. Garbo had wisely invested in the stock market and had an art collection worth millions. She lived the rest of her life out of the public eye but socialized with her closest friends until her death.
