Original Greta Garbo Photograph From The Temptress, Garbo, Greta
61 Garbo, Greta Original Greta Garbo Photograph From The Temptress
Hollywood Metro Goldwyn Mayer 1926 Original Photograph Paper 
Superb early & rare 8" x 10" close-up portrait of Garbo from "The Temptress. Although no photographer is credited I would think that it was taken by Clarence Sincliar Bull. Unfortunately there is a few scrape dots beneath Garbo's lips and light chipping to the white margins, thus the bargain price for such a rare and vintage photograph of the still legendary movie star.
