30 Stunning Vintage Photos of Greta Garbo in the 1920s

Greta Garbo (September 18, 1905 – April 15, 1990) was a Swedish actress during Hollywood’s silent film period and part of its Golden Age. Regarded as one of the greatest and most inscrutable movie stars ever produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and the Hollywood studio system. She traveled many times onboard the Swedish America Line from New York to Sweden throughout her career.

Actress Greta Garbo had a greater impact on her craft than did any other actress in the 20th century. She introduced what is now called method acting to the screen, and in 28 films, 25 of them filmed in the United States, redefined the image of women on the screen. Her stunning beauty and style captured the hearts of millions.

Here’s a look back at the legendary actress during the Roaring Twenties:
