Overview

Greta Garbo, born Greta Lovisa Gustafsson on 18th September 1905, in Soedermalm, Stockholm, Sweden was an actress during the '20s and '30s. Garbo was nominated 3 times for the Academy Award for Best Actress, having received an Academy Honorary Award in 1954 for her luminous and unforgettable screen performances . The American Film Institute ranked Garbo 5th on their list of the greatest female stars of classic Hollywood cinema during 1999. Greta launched her career with a secondary role in the Swedish movie The Saga of Goesta Berling in 1924. Her performance caught the attention of Louis B. Mayer, chief executive of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), who took her to Hollywood the following year. Garbo soon attracted attention with her first American silent film, Torrent (1926) then her performance in Flesh and the Devil (1927), her third motion picture, made her an international star. Greta's first talking movie was Anna Christie (1930), to which MGM enticed the public with the tagline Garbo talks! having starred in Romance that same year. Greta received the first of 3 Academy Award nominations for Best Actress for her performances in these films, Academy rules then allowing for a performer to receive a single nomination for their work in more than one picture. Garbo's success allowed her to dictate the terms of her contract during 1932, having become increasingly selective about her roles, her next pictures including Mata Hari (1931), Grand Hotel (1932), and Queen Christina (1933). Many critics and film historians regard Greta's performance as the doomed courtesan Marguerite Gautier in Camille (1936) to be her finest, leading to her 2nd Academy Award nomination.
