Greta Garbo (MGM, c. 1929). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. French Personality Poster (22" X 29.5"). Beginning in the late 1920s and through the 1950s, MGM Studios released several personality posters featuring their top stars, both domestically and abroad. One of the studio's biggest draws, Greta Garbo, aka "The Swedish Sphinx," is seen here on this lovely French poster in dreamy shades of rose pink. Touchup has been applied to fold wear, light creases, pinholes, as well as a moderate tear in the upper right border and background. The poster had minor surface scuffs in Garbo's hair, and there are a couple of very small unaddressed pencil marks in her shoulder and cheek.
