my top 25 Greta Garbo movies

by annaphiline | created - 24 Mar 2011 | updated - 15 Nov 2011 | Public

These are all the Garbo movies there are to watch, and i rated them from favorite to least favorite. It's a personal choice, of course. Sometimes Garbo is brilliant but the film is not, and that makes it difficult sometimes. Hope you like the list though.
