The "truth" about Garbo
The stories, observations, descriptions, analyses and interpretations of Garbo are legends alone, and contrast sharply with the lack of information from Garbo herself. Distorted by rumour, guess, error or motive the real Garbo remains silent and elusive.
And yet is Garbo really that difficult to see and comprehend. Perhaps all we need to do is look, The truth about Garbo is in pictures. As she looks and appears so she is. Garbo's life and time and personality are in photographs. They are her biography. In this way Garbo has contributed to this book. Other contributors, known and unknowns, quoted and unquoted are also sincerely thanked.
