Sister of Sven Garbo and Alva Garbo.

 

In Italy, her first films (like Mata Hari (1931) and Grand Hotel (1932)) were dubbed by Francesca Braggiotti. Because Braggiotti had been living in the United States for many years and had a slight American accent, the Italian public didn't really accept her voice so the very Italian Tina Lattanzi was chosen as Garbo's official Italian voice instead (she even re-dubbed Mata Hari (1931)). For her last two films Ninotchka (1939) and Two-Faced Woman (1941), she was dubbed by Andreina Pagnani. When some of Garbo films were re-released in Italy in the 1960's, they were re-dubbed once more. This is how stage actress Anna Proclemer lent her voice to the divine Garbo.

My talents fall within definite limitations. I am not as versatile an actress as some think.

 

There is no one who would have me - I can`t cook.

cavitelady427 - Greta Garbo was Swedish and I happen to have a Swedish sister in law whose grandmother was Swedish silent film star Tora Teje. Tora was Greta`s idol and she copied her low, sensual voice. Tora is the mother of Claus Sylwander. (5 years ago)
