I’ve wanted to compliment someone as being like Garbo since Kirk said it about Martha in the “Always a Godmother Never a God” episode. There was one problem, I have no idea what that means so I probably shouldn’t say it. I can only assume that they are referring to Greta Garbo. I can also infer from context clues (shout out to my fourth grade teacher for that phrase) that Greta Garbo was somewhat aloof. So I headed over to wikipedia to find out.
Here is a picture of Greta Garbo. I chose it because she looks aloof here.
In 1999 AFI rated her the 5th greatest female star of all time. That’s a mighty fine distinction for someone I’ve never seen in a movie. (They rated 1. Katharine Hepburn 2. Bette Davis 3. Audrey Hepburn 4. Ingrid Bergman if you were wondering)
She starred in silent movies early on which is why I have never seen her.
Straight from wikipedia:
When she was filmed, if something happened that she was not pleased with she would say, “I think I’ll go back to Sweden!”
Greta never gave interviews, signed autographs, answered fan mail or attended premieres. She was famous for saying “I want to be alone”
Ok, now I have to go outside & find people so I can use my newfound Garbo quote.
