And indeed it was true.
Garbo had come to pay tribute to
her long-time friend, Orson Welles,
for the success of
his film noir masterpiece,
"Touch of Evil."
Rarely seen in public for many years now,
the impression she left for those
who saw her now,
was of regal bearing and class,
and when she turned her enigmatic smile
upon the little girl who looked at
so adoringly, their hearts melted.
