The Chemistry Just Wasn't There...

                                        Inspiration (1931)

Another Ross Verlag, this time with a still from Inspiration.  The Bob and Garbo on-screen pairing did not exactly work out, two very different people.  Perhaps it would have worked at a later time in Bob's career when he could have been as cold and edgy to Ms. Garbo as she was to him.  Think Bob and Bette in June Bride, wherein the edginess worked well as their characters were constantly at war.  Of course, it did not help that Garbo, who was actually a year younger than Bob, looked more like his big sister than lover.
