Love at first sight

I had always heard of Great Garbo but had not seen her. Thanks for spotlighting her this month. This documentary is wonderfully done. I'd love to see it again sometime, PLEASE! Ms.Close is terrific, I think best choice. Thank you again.
I thought that Glenn Close did a fantastic job of highlighting Greta Garbo's life and career. This documentary gave me the oportunity to delve into many facets of her persona and made me aware of some of the little known facts of her early years. I am very frustrated that I can seem to purchase a copy of the Divine Greta Garbo anywhere.
Fall in Love with Garbo!
This is what got me hooked on Garbo. I had heard of her, but had never seen her movies. I knew she was beautiful and mysterious, and read books a lot as a kid, and she was always referenced in Pop Culture during my childhood, but I was in my early 20s in NYC when I saw this on Cable. I fell madly in love with Greta Garbo, and haven't looked back.At one time, I had every movie (silent ones too) that she ever made...but have since switched to DVD. I have a VHS copy of this, but would love to get it on DVD.Garbo was the ulimate movie star, and if you watch this, you will see why.If you loved her already, you will fall for her all over again, if she is new to you, then you will be hooked after this.Glenn Close does a great job in the commentary, and I also really like the usage of classic songs by Gershwin "The Way you Wear your hat...." really is a nice touch and make it all the more convincing...There will never be another Garbo!PS--Hard to beleive I actually lived in the same city she did! I did go to visit her home on her birthday after she passed away.
Having not yet seen this...,but being a garbo fan,
I will be watching and recording this tonight, to add to my completion of Greta garbo. I'am most thankful to TCM, for airing these old time favorties. I also much appreciate the format used by TCM, in airing the whole collection in one stretch, which is terrific for someone like me, who chooses to record my classics collection. Also, being able to come to the TCM site allows me to print the necessary information on movies, which I include on all the dvd covers. I absolutely love Greta Garbo, I feel she is the most beautiful woman naturally, I'am mesmermized when watching her movies, First by her beauty, and second by her acting ability. Let's just say, that today, due to being able to complete my garbo collection, including her biography, I'am a very happy lady!
