Greta Garbo and Jackie the MGM Lion

I saw this picture in a book I’m reading, Walking With Garbo. This was just one of the many photo shoots she had to do for MGM when she was starting out in Hollywood. Apparently on this one she made a bee line for the bathroom and had to be “thrust into the cage”. Poor girl.

Nice kitty, good kitty…

This is the same lion with a trainer.

He’s just playing!

I am never getting that close to a lion.
