He face is perfectly proportioned and symmetrical as is her physique. I make lampshades and chandeliers using my collection of movie star photos and the star I have most photos of is Garbo.
I've owned the Garbo DVD collection for years now and it's still unopened. I actually don't care for many of her films, I don't feel they hold up very well today. Mostly, I don't care for her leading men, but generally I find the stories weak, the only exciting part of them is Garbo herself in those Adrian concoctions.
That said, I think Ninochka is the most accessible/enjoyable and Anna Christie (both versions) her best drama closely followed by Queen Christina. Most of the rest-meh. I was surprised to read a piece by Richard Schickel recently, where he shares my sentiments; the mystique and beauty of the woman is greater than her films.
(I'm ready for the flaming)
