Peers Celebrate Garbo's Life

Friends and acquaintances of late film legend GRETA GARBO gathered in Hollywood on Thursday (07APR05) to mark the 100th anniversary of the actress' birth year.

The ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE ARTS AND SCIENCES (AMPAS) invited Swedish actress LENA OLIN to host the bash, which was attended by author GORE VIDAI and JOAN LESLIE.

Garbo was born in Stockholm, Sweden, in September 1905 and got her big break when she signed a contract with METRO-GOLDWYN MAYER (MGM) in 1925.

Garbo was nominated for four OSCARS in the 1930s before retiring from Hollywood at the age of 36.

She died in New York on 15 April 1990 from pneumonia.
