Grattis på födelsedagen Greta Garbo | 18 September, 1905 - 15 April, 1990

For the denizens of the first half of the twentieth century, when such images still counted, Garbo was the moviegoing experience—theory and practice alike. Some quirk of Nature and Art created a face, a personality, and an erotic presence unprecedented in history. In a way, she could hardly be held accountable for the person she became. Garbo was an anomaly, not a mystery. She was something to be experienced rather than adored, but people did both. And as that experience and adoration continue, so does the restless resistance of her spirit.
