On April 21, 1927, Garbo was photographed for the first time in six months. She had just returned to MGM to star in Anna Karenina, and was visiting silent actress Lillian Gish on the set of Victor Seastrom's The Wind.


“I heard one day that she had lost her only sister,” wrote Gish, “and I sent her flowers and a note. Garbo [later] came to thank me, but she could not speak English. Tears came to her eyes, but I could not speak Swedish so I put my arms around her and we both cried. I knew how I would feel if I had lost my darling sister and could not get to her from a strange, far land.”

The photo was used and made for publicity reasons.
