The Swedish-American icon, who disappeared from acting and public view in 1941, remained a mythical figure right up until her death, living alone in Manhattan and shunning interviews and invitations.
Spanning several decades but penned primarily in the 1930s and early '40s from Beverly Hills, California, Garbo wrote all the letters to her friend the countess Marta Wachtmeister, who lived in Tistad Castle in Sweden which Garbo visited frequently.
The correspondence laid bare the inescapable unease that pervaded her life, including her "loneliness, depression, and ill-health, her constant homesickness and love of the Swedish countryside," according to Sotheby's.
Garbo was nominated four times for an Academy Award and received an honorary one in 1954 for her "unforgettable screen performances".
Only the royal suite at the grandest hotel in Paris has a safe large enough for the jewels of the Grand Duchess Swana. The rest of the cast is also superb, and combined with excellent cinematography and a strong script, they combine to produce an excellent movie.
So the three Russians who have come to sell the jewels settle into the suite until a higher ranking official is dispatched to find out what is delaying the sale. Then I must mention Kay Stewart as the Cigarette Girl. The magnificent Billy Wilder is partly responsible for the great dialogue. Garbo performance is immaculate in her biggest comedy role, Melvyn Douglas supporting role is also very good, he enhance Garbo perfectly. Using the Soviet Union as the source of jokes is risky but the movie deals with the subject in an entertaining manner.
It seemed this was Garbo's own desire but the letters -- most unsigned, save for one autographed "The Clown" and two others that ended in sketches of female figures -- suggest that once she got her wish, solitary life failed to bring happiness."I am almost always alone and talk to myself.
I drive to the beach and take walks and that's always marvellous.
