She Just Was Not Very Nice to Young Bob

Now, this is a beautiful still photo from Inspiration (1931).  Black and white photography can be just marvelous.  Love it.  Unfortunately, my blog format is too limited to show this properly.  So ...

How about a blow-up of the photo's centerpiece.  Hey, it's Yvonne (Garbo) and Andre (Bob) headed up the stairs to his apartment. 

Hmm....what could they be thinking about.

Garbo was not happy about being in Inspiration, not liking the role, the script and apparently her co-star who she gave the cold (or more accurately frozen) shoulder throughout the movie.  Bob was humiliated in front of the entire crew, not a nice thing to do to the young actor.  Power just does not bring out the best in people.
