Happy Birthday, Greta Garbo! | 18 September, 1905 – 15 April, 1990.

“She has this great appeal to the world because she expresses her emotions by thinking them. Garbo does not need gestures and movements to convey happiness, despair, hope and disappointment, joy or tragedy. She registers her feelings literally by radiating her thoughts to you.”  Clarence Brown

I have grown up in a great man’s shadow. All my life, I’ve been a symbol. A symbol is eternal, changeless… an abstraction. A human being is mortal and changeable, with desires and impulses, hopes and despairs. I’m tired of being a symbol, Chancellor. I long to be a human being! This longing I cannot suppress.

Queen Christina, 1933 | Rouben Mamoulian.

"The face under that lion’s mane was of striking beauty, it was the loveliest face I ever saw; actually, even today, I’ve never come across a more beautiful one. Her forehead was like the marble of a pained Goddess, and large eyes full of golden darkness. Her long arched eyebrows were carefully shaven and drawn, the black shadows of her eyelids were artfully deepened; otherwise, she didn’t use rouge, not even lipstick, so her mouth appeared quite pale: a large, pale mouth contemptuous of incomparable form, set in an ardously sculpted large, pale face, with a sadly proud expression."- Klaus Mann, son of the famous German writer Thomas Mann, who met Garbo in Hollywood during 1927-1928
