By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Grand Hotel was the first Garbo film I ever saw, and she enchanted me effortlessly, despite the presence of the rest of the powerful ensemble cast. The film won the Oscar for Best Picture. Warner Home Video, which holds the rights to all the old MGM stuff, has released a truly spectacular DVD box set, Garbo: The Signature Collection, certainly one of the all-time greats.It includes no less than ten Greta Garbo films, plus both English and German-languageversions of Anna Christie (1930). Other films include: The Temptress (1926), Flesh and the Devil (1927), The Mysterious Lady (1928), Mata Hari (1931), Grand Hotel (1932), Queen Christina (1933), Anna Kareninna (1935), Camille (1936) andNinotchka (1939), plus a new Turner Classic Movies documentary Garbo.Other extras include a snippet from the lost film The Divine Woman, analternate ending for The Temptress, audio commentary tracks on selectedfilms, a featurette about composing the new scores for the silent films, a photogallery and a trailer.
