Hugo Vickers will look at the dazzling career of Greta Garbo, one of Hollywood’s most elusive stars – who made the transition from silent films to talkies. He will also examine her troubled relationship with the photographer Cecil Beaton, the fascination she held for Mercedes de Acosta (“I can get any woman from any man”) and with Georges Schlee (the Kafkaesque guard who escorted her to her next inscrutable rendezvous), and his wife, Valentina, the eccentric Russian dress designer.
