Today in History: Great Garbo born in 1905

Greta Garbo (born Greta Lovisa Gustafsson) was a Swedish film actress during the 1920s and 1930s. Garbo was nominated three times for the Academy Award for Best Actress and received an Academy Honorary Award in 1954 for her “luminous and unforgettable screen performances.” Garbo launched her career in Hollywood in 1925. Her 1926 performance in Flesh and the Devil, her third movie, made her an international star. Her success continued in films such as Mata Hari (1931) and Grand Hotel (1932) but declined in the late 1930s when she was one of the many stars labeled “Box Office Poison” in 1938. Her career revived upon her turn to comedy in Ninotchka (1939)but after the failure of Two-Faced Woman (1941), she retired from the screen, at the age of 35, after acting in twenty-eight films. From then on, Garbo declined all opportunities to return to the screen. Shunning publicity, she led a private life until her death in 1990. Source: wikipedia.org.

Today in History: Titanic found in 1985

33 years ago on this day, a team of American and French researchers discovered the sunken wreck of the luxury liner RMS Titanic south-southeast of the coast of Newfoundland in a depth of 12,500 feet (3,800 m). Key to the discovery was a remotely controlled undersea vehicle called Argo which helped verify the ship’s identity with cameras and sonar. The Titanic sunk on April 15, 1912 after hitting an iceberg on her maiden voyage, resulting in the loss of more than 1,500 lives. The ship was the biggest and most luxurious liner of her day.
