Greta Garbo at USC

27 May 2007 /

From Scott Wolf Inside USC:

In 1926, MGM called USC and sent actress Greta Garbo down to pose for some publicity photos with the track team.

Garbo initially refused until MGM deducted $25 from her salary, which convinced her to head to campus and don a USC track singlet.

    Amazing what $25 could buy in 1926.

    The man behind Greta Garbo on the USC photos is Jannes Anderson from Mora in Sweden. He was often called Dr Anderson and worked for USC and MGM where he was physical trainer for Greta Garbo and other actors.
    Dr Anderson immigrated to USA 1919. He was born 1890 and died 1950.
    I’m interested to know more of Jannes Anderson.

    In an article about Jannes Andersson (Dr Anderson)in the Swedish “Filmjournalen” #35, 1935, is the team photos with him and Greta Garbo published.
    There is no doubt that it is Jannes Andersson on the photos.
    I´m interested to know more about Jannes Andersson.

    Como homem feio realça a beleza da mulher que está do lado. Homem feio é o melhor acessório….
