Suspended for our leisurely and close examination, the presence and gestures of Gish, Garbo, and Davis vibrate in many series of frames that suggest the vitality of the films of which they are a part.” With sections devoted to Lillian Gish's work with D.W. Griffith and Victor Seastrom and King Vidor at MGM in the late 1920s, Greta Garbo's great roles in Grand Hotel and Camille, and Bette Davis's performances in Jezebel, The Letter, The Little Foxes, Dark Victory, and Now Voyager.
