Louis B Mayer was the greatest of the Hollywood moguls and Scott Eyman’s energetic, colourful and opinionated biography is the first to do justice to him as someone more complex than the one-dimensional ogre of legend.

When Jack Gilbert, the hottest star of the silent era of Hollywood, first met Greta Garbo, the icy young Swede, she snubbed him. Not long after, Louis B Mayer, head of MGM, forced them to work together in a film. He felt that the young starlet who lit up the silver screen could only benefit by playing alongside Gilbert. Garbo, sad and vulnerable after the death of her sister, wanted to go home. Gilbert was facing divorce from his wife and didn't want to work with such an awkward co-star, who already insisted on walking off the set promptly at . 0, even in mid-scene

Talk about love at first sight! . This couple tries to spend all their time together, and they’re rarely seen in public. The couple is extremely reticent about their personal life

Talk about love at first sight! Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. We want to protect our tender union from the prying eyes, said Freddie. This is why we have such a great relationship. James Belushi and Jennifer Sloan. The couple is extremely reticent about their personal life. Maybe this is the recipe for a long and happy relationship - keep the strangers out of it. Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Levin.

  • If you don't care about facts and want to read a fantasy, then this book will do. Otherwise, don't bother. The author acknowledges "this is a non-fiction novel based on real events. It contains imagined conversations, but they have been written only after extensive research." The author actually recreates bedroom conversations between Garbo and Gilbert which of course, he has no knowledge of, nor does he cite any instances where he got any of his presumed facts. Ever. This goes on throughout the book. There is no documentation or quotes by anyone else who might have known what really took place between these two people. We are left wondering what he is pulling from his imagination and what he is writing from his 'extensive research.' It is common knowledge that Gilbert was crazy about Garbo and over the years she said different things about him, depending on her mood and how much time had passed since his death. No doubt, he was a friend to her against Mayer and the MGM machine and he helped her make some wise choices in the business, and she was very upset by his death at the age of 36, but this book seems to dwell on and swell up the Garbo-Gilbert affair, which ignited and burned out rather quickly for Garbo, if you cite other biographies on her. This book reads like the MGM publicity department trying to cash in what people want to hear rather than the truth. In one part of the book, she is in Sweden viewing articles that belonged to her beloved mentor, M. Stiller, after his death. This author quotes her as saying to a lawyer as she is touching his former belongings, "I am remembering this room. In the future, in my memory, I shall live a great deal in this room." Every Garbo fan knows this is a line from the movie "Queen Christina", which she had yet to film. Granted, while on this trip to Sweden, Garbo was doing research for this particular movie about the Swedish Queen, and she may have drawn upon this encounter (method acting) while filming, but nothing is mentioned by the author to that affect. Instead, this is thrown in for some kind of dramatic effect it seems, and it is highly unlikely she actually said those words aloud to a practical stranger about something so personal. It was movie dialogue that probably had not even been written yet. This book reads like a fan magazine and I don't trust a word in it.

  • Wow, this author needs to do more research. I love Garbo and Flesh And The Devil with John Gilbert of course was one of her best movies. But Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks became the first celebrity couple in 1920! At that time Mary Pickford was the biggest and most popular screen star in the world. I saw interviews where people said they attracted more people to their public appearances than the Beatles by far. Once Douglas had to put Mary on his shoulders to protect her from the crowd and Mary's frightened look is captured on film.
    I do love Garbo and Gilbert though, don't get me wrong. Gilbert doesn't get the attention he deserved and the attention he does get it wrong! He should have gone easily into talking pictures because there was nothing wrong with his voice. But the head of MGM, Louis B. Mayer wanted Gilbert destroyed and Gilbert's film career soon ended. I'm glad this book is out though but Hollywood's Second Great Celebrity Couple just wouldn't sound right I guess.
