“Loneliness is repellent. It has a subtle aura of sadness, an inadequacy to attract or interest ; one feels slightly ashamed of it. But, to a more or less degree, it is the theme of everyone.”
— Excerpt from Charles Chaplin’s “My Autobiography”

Happy Birthday, Greta Garbo! | 18 September, 1905 – 15 April, 1990.

“She has this great appeal to the world because she expresses her emotions by thinking them. Garbo does not need gestures and movements to convey happiness, despair, hope and disappointment, joy or tragedy. She registers her feelings literally by radiating her thoughts to you.”  Clarence Brown
