notes: “When one is forced to watch a film in theater without air conditioning on a flaming-hot summer day, it’d better be a Greta Garbo picture. The frost projected by that woman could not be reproduced in a million years. Not even by an ultra modern air-conditioner. When Greta stabbed her glossy eyes into the arbitrary victim chosen to be her co-star, one could actually see how the poor guys lost their normal, human, standard temperature. They called her “The Devine Garbo”, the modern feminine answer to Mother Mary, kind of Madonna, a saint, and surely enough parallels between the two can easily be detected: Both of them have never gotten married, they both sought to find spiritual expression, only Garbo was smart enough to use the image for the sake of a not so terrible career”.
