Les presento Grand Hotel: Una película fácil, escapista, de trama vacía, entretenimiento banal, empaquetada con estrellas, hecha durante un período de crisis global. Sin embargo, el filme se mantiene dando la batalla -y comienza a llamar la atención de una crítica que lo reconsidera, siete décadas después. Será por ella, de voz casi masculina, perfil apolíneo, mirada triste y lejana (pero sobre todo su insondable soledad). "Did they miss me? ... They didn't even miss me."

Por ella es que la critica "reconsidera" la pelicula. Ella sola se merece toda la atencion del mundo. Desde el trabajo no pedo ver la pelicula pero cuando llegue por la tarde vuelvo a antrar. MD

Greta Garbo was considered one of the most glamorous movie stars of the 1920s and 1930s. She was also famous for shunning publicity, which became part of the Garbo mystique. Except at the very beginning of her career, she granted no interviews, signed no autographs, attended no premieres, and answered no fan mail.

Her famous byline was always said to be, "I want to be alone," spoken with a heavy accent which made the word 'want' sound like vont. This quote as noted comes from her role in Grand Hotel, however, Garbo later commented, "I never said, 'I want to be alone.' I only said, 'I want to be left alone.' There is all the difference."

In recent years it has been revealed through countless sources about how common bisexuality and lesbianism were in the early years of Hollywood. Many stars of the silver screen were known to prefer the same sex, but the powerful studios almost always invented a life that would cover the "darker" side of the stars' lives from the general public.

Garbo kept her private affairs out of the limelight. According to private letters released in Sweden in 2005 to mark the centenary of her birth, she was reclusive in part because she was "self-obsessed, depressive, and ashamed of her latrine-cleaner father." [8]

Some also suggest that Garbo remained single in the United States because of an unrequited love for her drama school sweetheart, the Swedish actress Mimi Pollak [9]. Garbo's personal letters recently released to the public indicate that she remained in love with Pollak for the rest of her life. When Pollak announced she was pregnant, Garbo wrote: "We cannot help our nature, as God has created it. But I have always thought you and I belonged together."

Garbo's biographer Barry Paris notes that she was "technically bisexual, predominantly lesbian, and increasingly asexual as the years went by," and it has been indicated that Garbo struggled greatly with her sexuality, only becoming involved with other women in affairs that she could control [10].

Her most famous heterosexual relationship was with actor John Gilbert. They starred together for the first time in the classic Flesh and the Devil in 1926. Their on-screen "erotic intensity" [11] soon translated into an off-camera romance, and by the end of production Garbo had moved in with Gilbert [12]. Gilbert is said to have proposed to Garbo at least three times [13], though when a marriage was finally arranged in 1927, she failed to show up at the ceremony [14].

She was also linked romantically with actresses Marlene Dietrich, Tallulah Bankhead, Eva Le Gallienne, Joan Crawford, Louise Brooks, Ona Munson; with writer Salka Viertel, conductor Leopold Stokowski, and had a longterm and unstable affair with writer/poet Mercedes de Acosta from 1931 to 1944, which ended badly [15]. Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor has also claimed to have been won over by Garbo and kissed her, but when Greta invited her up to her room, Zsa Zsa left completely bewildered.
