Gone But Not Forgotten




GRETA GARBO

(18 September 1905 – 15 April 1990)



Greta Garbo, was a Swedish film actress and an international star and icon during Hollywood's silent and classic periods. Many of her films were sensational hits, and all but three of her twenty-four Hollywood films were profitable.


Garbo was nominated four times for an Academy Award and received an honorary one in 1954 for her "luminous and unforgettable screen performances".


In 1941, she retired after appearing in only twenty-seven films. Although she was offered many opportunities to return to the screen, she declined most of them. Instead, she lived a private life, shunning publicity.



GARBOS' QUOTES

+ "Life would be so wonderful if we only knew what to do with it."

+"I don't want to be a silly temptress. I cannot see any sense in getting dressed up and doing nothing but tempting men in pictures.
Greta Garbo

+ "I never said, 'I want to be alone.' I only said, 'I want to be left alone.' There is all the difference."


+ "You don't have to be married to have a good friend as your partner for life."
