Greta Garbo was one of the biggest stars of silent cinema. However, despite masterful performances throughout the 30s in large budget sound films, a cynical and ageist Hollywood system ever clamoriing for the new thing would label her “box office poison” by 1938. Garbo had a brief comeback with Ninotchka, giving a shining performance as a Russian diplomat in one of her first full-fledged comedies. Sadly her success was short-lived — the combination of Two-Faced Woman (1941) being labled a “box-office failure” and the onset of WWII, a time when many film projects dried up overnight, would derail her career for good. This gorgeous Spanish 1-sheet poster from “mac”, Macario Gómez Quibus, was created in the early 1960s as the importance of Garbo’s contribution to film history was being re-evaluated in newly emerging film studies programs and cinema clubs — as were many other silent screen legends like Swanson, Chaplin, Keaton, and Davis. Despite living almost 50 years after Two-Faced Woman she never made another film and passed away in 1990.
