Garbo Reviews

  • Jun 01, 2015

    Another exceptional documentary from Film Historian Kevin Brownlow focusing on unusual & reclusive Greta Garbo. The Doco starts at her life & her major transition from Sweden to MGM in Hollywood in the mid 1920's & her rapid rise to fame and her pursuit of having a personal life despite being in the spotlight. The film then focuses on her sound films in the 1930's then here separation with Hollywood then her later years alone for most of them NYC. A strange & fascinating actress & this is a great portrait.
