A Little Garbo Obsession





A Little Garbo Obsession

jimmypage:

A live interview with Joan Crawford, April 1973 at a town hall:

JOAN: We got to Grand  Hotel, um…I was with a public relations man Jerry Asher whom you  remember…SPRINGER: Sure.JOAN: And Miss Garbo worked  from nine to five. Curfew. And I had to be ready at five to go on. And I  was standing outside the dressing room and I said, “Jerry! Stand back!  Stand back! Here comes Miss Garbo!” and I said “Hold your breath! Stand  back! She doesn’t like to see anybody!” So she came up and she paused  and I started to run down and she was below me, I was on the top step  and she was two below me…and I didn’t know what to do. So I said  “Excuse me, Miss Garbo,” and she took my face in her hands and said,  “Oh, I am so sorry we have no scenes togedder. I am so sorry.” And I  looked at this face with the sun in the west…on this beautiful face. She was five-thirty at that time and she was the most beautiful thing I  have ever seen in my life and I went BLING!
