Garbo appeared in only 24 films. She became
the Queen of Tragedy in Hollywood. In many
of her films, she had to pay the price for any indiscretion. Audiences expected her to die
in her films or else be ostracized for her sins.
It was only at the end of Garbo's career that Hollywood decided to put her in comedy.
Ironically, her first film in Sweden had been
a short comedy.
