Hats Off To Greta Garbo!

By , 12 March, 2009, No Comment

A pictorial salute to the many hats of the legendary & beautiful Greta Garbo.

This photo is of Garbo in The Painted Veil, where she trades the sophisticated turban of a bored & cheating wife for better habits – if not a literal nun’s habit and veil.

Garbo sure looks like she has a “cloche” relationship with her mom. *wink*

This photo of Greta on a yacht could be from The Single Standard

The Single Standard is one Garbo film I’ve yet to see, but considered by many to be one of her best films. I’m guessing the reason the film is only available on VHS (and pricey too yet) is because too many folks don’t like the silent films. But I adore them and was hoping the film would be in a Garbo Signature Collection, or TCM’s The Garbo Silents Collection. I continue to hope that TCM or someone puts out a DVD of The Single Standard soon… That would be something to take your hat off for. *wink*
