1940s, Greta Garbo

Cecil Beaton on Greta Garbo.


“She could engender those feelings. She was a wonderful mixture of strength and sensitivity, wisdom and caring. She was full of humor, logic and practicality. Above all, she knew who she was. She was the best friend you could have. You could never be safer with anyone. She spoke to you with her eyes; they were magical, and you knew that she was even more beautiful on the inside.” — Stuart D. Saal Photograph by: Cecil Beaton (1946)
