    Greta Garbo in Anna Karenina Greta Garbo in Anna Karenina (), directed by Clarence Brown. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. Any fan of stories that involve juicy subjects like adultery, gambling, marriage plots, and, well, Russian feudalism, would instantly place Anna Karenina at the peak of their “greatest novels” list. And that’s exactly the ranking that publications like Time magazine have.   Last but not the least the book is saturated with great rare pictures of Greta Garbo. Jolly dialogues between Miss Garbo and Sam Green taken from audio tapes are the zest of the book. As a conclusion, the book is worth reading since it deals with eine Frau, die ein Geheimnis des Jahrhunderts by: 8.

      "The Great Garbo," United Press added, was "fed up with the stares of Palm Beach’s socially prominent." By Feb. 15, Garbo and Hauser were spotted on a . Greta Garbo called homosexual affairs "exciting secrets." And if you were "one of the girls," as early Hollywood described Sapphic stars ranging from the great Nazimova to Marlene Dietrich, Tallulah Bankhead, and Garbo herself, exciting secrets lent both your life and your art its edge.

    Rising to stardom between two world wars, Garbo appeared at a time when she was most needed. From the frenetic twenties through the numbing dreariness of the Great Depression, she epitomized the woman for whom the world so desperately longed - a human goddess, hauntingly mortal and perfectly immortal.". Payne describes how Garbo's timeless beauty worked its magic in such films as Flesh and the Devil, Anna Christie, Mata Hari, Grand Hotel, Queen Christina, Camille, and Ninotchka. Remarkable photos show the transformation of working-class girl Greta Gustafsson into a Hollywood bit player, and later into an icon of cinema glamour.
