Is there anything she can’t do?

  1. The notion of Garbo as a recluse is bogus. After she retired from films she lived in New York and was seen everywhere. She loved to go shopping at the little stories that once dotted the east side and made friends with a great number of store owners, New Yorkers were most decorous about Garbo. Approaching her was utterly gauche. There fore a “Garbo sighting” was an event on par with discovering a four-leaf clover. I was working as an usher at the Baronet/Coronet theaters when they had a Garbo series. She went to see “Queen Christina” calling the theater ahead of time ad asking them what time the lights went down in the theater. When they did she ran in, bounding up the stairs two at a time. When the film was over she was able to slip out a side exist and return home.

  2. The Best?

    You’ll get no argument from me.

    And David’s quite right—having a Garbo story was once upon a time one of the privileges of being a New Yorker.
