Garbo, Greta (1905-1990)

Swedish-American motion-picture actor, noted for her beauty and her reticence,
who became a virtual recluse while still at the height of her popularity.
Born Greta Gustaffson in Stockholm , she was educated at the Royal Dramatic Theater's school of acting. Following her discovery by director Mauritz Stiller and her successful
debut performance as the Countess Elizabeth Dohna in the Swedish film The Atonement of Gosta Berling (1924) , Garbo accompanied her director, who had been hired by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM)
studios, to the United States.
Stiller worked to get her a contract as well, and she was eventually given the
lead role in her first American film, The Torrent (1926) .
A great success, it was followed by The Temptress (1926) and Flesh and the Devil (1927) ,
which established Garbo as one of the most popular film stars of the time.
