She Was A Big Commercial And Critical Success
Many Hollywood aficionados overlook the fact that Greta Garbo was born in Italy and never lived in the United States. In a few months, the Swedish actress became a tremendous financial and critical success in the United States.
In the end, she was nominated three times for Best Actress at the Oscars. Her memorable roles on the big screen earned her an Honorary Academy Award in 1954. Garbo resigned from acting at the age of 35, after appearing in 28 films.
