More information

Generally regarded as one of the greatest screen actresses of all time, Garbo was known for her melancholic, somber persona due to her many portrayals of tragic characters in her films and for her subtle and understated performances. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Garbo fifth on its list of the greatest female stars of classic Hollywood cinema.



Garbo launched her career with a secondary role in the 1924 Swedish film The Saga of Gösta Berling. Her performance caught the attention of Louis B. Mayer, chief executive of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), who brought her to Hollywood in 1925. She stirred interest with her first American silent film, Torrent (1926). Garbo's performance in Flesh and the Devil (1927), her third movie, made her an international star.[1] In 1928, Garbo starred in A Woman of Affairs which catapulted her into becoming MGM's highest box-office grossing star usurping the long reigning Lillian Gish. Garbo's other well known films from the silent era are The Mysterious Lady (1928), The Single Standard (1929) and The Kiss (1929).
