of the 1920s and 1930s, but was just as famous for shunning publicity,
which became part of the Garbo mystique. Except at the very beginning

from the entertainment world completely and moved to a secluded
life in New York City. Up until her death, Garbo sightings were
considered sport for paparazzi photographers.
