The mystery surrounding Garbo was as thick as a London fog.
What, when drunk, one sees in other women, one sees in Garbo sober.Kenneth Tynan
Except physically, we know little more about Garbo than we know about Shakespeare.Kenneth Tynan
Garbo still belongs to that moment in cinema when capturing the human face still plunged audiences into the deepest ecstasy, when one literally lost oneself in a human image as one would in a philtre, when the face represented a kind of absolute state of the flesh, which could be neither reached nor renounced.Roland Barthes
What, when drunk, one sees in other women, one sees in Garbo sober. (p. 79)Kenneth Tynan
