The film guide to Stockholm
"Film has dreams, film has music. No form of art transcends ordinary consciousness the way film does, delving straight into our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul.”
Greta Garbo (1905-1990) is considered one of the greatest and most inscrutable movie stars ever produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Hollywood in the silent film period. She was born Greta Gustafsson and grew up on Södermalm in Stockholm. Garbo received the Academy Honorary Award for her unforgettable screen performance in 1954, and in 1999 she was ranked the fifth greatest female star of all time by the American Film Institute.
