Inspiration (1931)

Inspiration has always been one of those films I've wanted to like, but have never been able to "get into." Story aside, my gut feel is that Greta Garbo overpowers Bob. IMO, it's an attractive pairing on paper (and in photos), but odd on film. I had to look this one up too: Greta is only a year older than Bob in this 1931 film. She comes off as older to me.

Yeah, it's a movie that's beautiful, in the sense that they both look incredibly attractive, the setting and the sets are gorgeous, etc., but the chemistry is rather non-existant between those two. Still, it's great to see two greats on screen together.
