PHOTOGRAPH OF ACTRESS GRETA GARBO IN A SCENE FROM THE “TEMPTRESS” (1926)

This original vintage photograph is a French press photo from 1991. The image features the actress, Greta Garbo in a scene from the silent film, “The Temptress” (1926). Garbo (1905-1990) was a Swedish film actress in the 1920’s and 1930’s. She was beautiful and she was talented. During her career she was nominated three times for the Academy Award for best actress. The American Film Institute rated her fifth on their list of the greatest female stars of classic Hollywood cinema. Her first film role was in the Swedish film “The Saga of Gosta Berling” (1924). Louis B. Mayer, the head of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) was impressed by her performance and brought her to Hollywood in 1925. Her performance in the silent film “Flesh and the Devil” made her an international star. Her first talkie was “Anna Christie” (1930). Many film experts believe her finest performance came in the film “Camille” (1936). By1938, her career went into a tailspin and she retired from the movie industry at the ripe young age of 35. In total, she had appeared in twenty-eight films. She led a very private life in her retirement and she became an art collector in her later years. She clearly knew her art, evidenced by the fact that her collection was worth millions of dollars when she died. This photograph measures 7″ x 5″ and is in excellent condition (see scans).  (SOLD)
