    Description

    Greta Garbo in "Grand Hotel" by Clarence Sinclair Bull (MGM, 1932). Portrait (10" X 13").
    Vintage gelatin silver, double weight, cream-toned, deckled-edge, matte finish photo. MGM's hit film opens with the ironic line "Grand Hotel. People come and go. Nothing ever happens." The picture then proceeds to disprove this statement with several intertwining stories that change the residents' lives forever. The most striking character in this tableau is the legendary Greta Garbo, as the world weary ballerina Grusinskaya who cries "I want to be alone." Recto: Clarence Sinclair Bull embossed blind stamp. Verso: MGM/Bull credit stamp in lavender ink. Do not miss out on your opportunity to own this flawless piece of cinematic history. Near Mint.
