garbo and gilbert had serious chemistry. when she began to make films in hollywood he was the biggest star of all. they fell in love, the talkies came, and as garbo rose to greater fame gilbert was out of a job due to audiences laughing at the sound of his voice. cruel!
when garbo made 'queen christina' she had them cast gilbert opposite her. i never really liked that film but i surely admire greta for reaching out to the one who gave her guidance in her early days.
