    1. I have not read Hugo Vickers' gigantic biography of Cecil Beaton, but it seems clear from the front matter and other clues here that this book constitutes a loose end of material that was left over from writing the biography because it didn't quite fit in. Namely, that the triangle between Beaton and Garbo and Mercedes de Acosta worked as a story in itself but required digression into Mercedes' and Garbo's lives that would have been out of place in an already unwieldy story--and the triangle her [...]

    2. If you are completely mesmerized by the legend of Greta Garbo this may not be the book for.

They are almost always in awe when talking about her beauty and when they become angry at the woman's reclusive nature, their anger is more about Garbo shunning her stardom and l [...]

    4. It was okay. Another title could be: Stringing People Along - The Greta Garbo Story. Or Toying with People's Emotions- The Greta Garbo Story.
