Greta Garbo was the absolute superstar in the Thirties of the Twentieth Century. The Swedish actress became famous through her roles as strong, determined women such as Anna Karenina, Queen Christina or the Polish Countess Maria Walewska. She succeeded in playing these characters in a subtle, demure way, manifesting deep emotions in close-ups simply through the expression of her eyes. The artistry of her acting was unique. As of 1928, she became known simply as „the Garbo“ and was a box office magnet.
