I was aware of that fact, and so I researched it and came up with these photos. To my knowledge, no other star had been so scrutinized. It was interesting that anyone would have gone to the trouble, but here are the results. I felt that this should be shared with all of those on these boards as an extra tid bit to add to their body of knowledge.
It's uncanny you mention this James, because I recall when many years ago -around 1986-1987 I think- a university class-mate who was very fond of Classics told me that Garbo had the most perfect features of any movie actress of all time and that they were measured to be geometrically perfect. She said to me that she had also measured her own features and that her features we're as symmetrically perfect as Garbo's. I was impressed by both statements.
By the way, in no other picture of hers that perfection is more evident than in that still from "Mata-Hari
" in which she wears that fabulous Jeweled piece -which you posted.
Talking about la Mata
, are there any news about the probable release of the uncut version of Mata-Hari that was found in Holland last year or so? And what about the uncensored version of "Two-Faced Woman
" that apparently surfaced too? I'm curious. I'd like to have the opportunity of watching both.
