From 1926 to 1941, Sweden's famed export made 24 Holly-wood films, all of which are detailed in Mark A. Vieira's Greta Garbo: A Cinematic Legacy. Featuring 250 photos, many never before seen (including an unretouched portrait of Garbo at 36), the book utilizes newly available MGM documents and articles of the day to examine the career that enshrined Hollywood's ultimate woman of mystery.

When not writing about movies, Los Angeles-based journalist Pat H. Broeske likes to watch them.
