Greta Garbo made her last film in 1941, and yet her name can still fill a cinema. She is undoubtedly one of the screen's immortals, a star whose individuality has triumphed over all changes in film fashion. This account of her life and films assesses the impact Garbo made on the critics and her public, and tries to sort out the strange strands of the Garbo legend. The result—a unique survey—is an intriguing montage of varied opinions, lively, provocative, adulatory and baffling. A complete list of her films, together with plot summaries, is an invaluable guide to her career, and over 165 illustrations pay an impressive tribute to her beauty and fascination.
