"The face under that lion’s mane was of striking beauty, it was the loveliest face I ever saw; actually, even today, I’ve never come across a more beautiful one. Her forehead was like the marble of a pained Goddess, and large eyes full of golden darkness. Her long arched eyebrows were carefully shaven and drawn, the black shadows of her eyelids were artfully deepened; otherwise, she didn’t use rouge, not even lipstick, so her mouth appeared quite pale: a large, pale mouth contemptuous of incomparable form, set in an ardously sculpted large, pale face, with a sadly proud expression."- Klaus Mann, son of the famous German writer Thomas Mann, who met Garbo in Hollywood during 1927-1928

Summer Movie List — 6 / ? → Cat on a Hot Tin Roof [1958]

Life ain’t just a bunch of high spots. You’re a thirty-year-old kid. Soon you’ll be a fifty-year-old kid, pretendin’ you’re hearin’ cheers when there ain’t any. Dreamin’ and drinkin’ your life away. Heroes in the real world live twenty-four hours a day, not just two hours in a game. Mendacity, you won’t… you won’t live with mendacity, but you’re an expert at it. The truth is pain and sweat and payin’ bills and makin’ love to a woman that you don’t love any more. Truth is dreams that don’t come true and nobody prints your name in the paper ‘til you die… The truth is, you never growed up. Grown-ups don’t hang up on their friends… and they don’t hang up on their wives… and they don’t hang up on life. Now that’s the truth and that’s what you can’t face!
