A little treasure for us fans. You hardly here anything but you get a little impression of Garbo speaking Swedish to reporters in 1946.

Copyright by

On 6 July 1946, boarded the Gripsholm for her first postwar visit to Sweden.

An army of reporters awaited her at the dock with questions, and one or two of them even got an answer. Asked if she was planning to affiliate with a newly organized Swedish film corporation, she replied: ‘Oo-la-la, no, nothing like that.’

Greta also agreed to pose for a few photos, even managing a smile. “I had to get up very early this morning,” she stated, adding that she was going to Sweden “just to take it easy.”

The Italian Greta Garbo is gone: Rossella Falk dies at 86

One of the greatest Italian stage actresses has died in Rome at the age of 86.

Rossella Falk was a giant among Italian actresses. The label “the Italian Greta Garbo” was well chosen, and even her hairstyle recalled that of the film star, though Falk’s career, unlike Garbo’s, continued well into her eighties. Her 2006 biography was called The Last Diva, and a diva she was. She frequented the likes of Jean Cocteau, Noël Coward, Dirk Bogarde, Peter O’Toole, and had a twenty-year friendship with Maria Callas, whom she later played in Terence McNally’s Master Class.

Greta’s Pop and Rock Records

Film Director and writer Allison Anders won Garbo's rock and pop records in the 2012 Julian’s Auction’s Greta Garbo (Dec., 2012). On her TUMBLR ‘Greta’s Records’, she plays them and talks about them.

GGs Records

Anders wrote that the question one needs to ask when you bid in an auction like this. What do you truly WANT, just something which belonged to her?  Everyone would love a dress she wore — but what would you really DO with it?  Keep it in plastic fearful of moths chewing it up? A lamp?  A plate?  A pair of gloves her fingers wriggled into?

Then — she saw it. Greta Garbo had records!  What would possibly be in Greta Garbo’s private record collection?  All of it was thrilling and surprising.  There were several lots of records up for auction — including one of classical records and opera, one of spoken word, one of jazz, then one of international records, and one of rock and pop records.

Anders bid on the last two lots and was the winning bidder on the rock/pop records! 50 of them! She now owns Greta Garbo’s Beatles records and her twist records.

She then found a great little vintage decoupaged record box from her office to put them in, and bought a little red Crosley Spinnerette portable record player so she could play them easily without hassle.

But she also thought it would be nice to share these records. So that’s the intent of her Tumbler Blog in 2013. With each post, she shared the experience of pulling a record from Greta’s collection and playing it all the way though, as we might imagine what Greta was doing when she was listening.

Allround talent Allison Anders

Anders has directed many independent films, on which she frequently collaborates with fellow UCLA film school graduate Kurt Voss. Two of her best known works are Four Rooms (USA 1995) and Grace of my Heart (USA 1996).
