Garbo Talks is a 1984 film directed by Sidney Lumet.

It stars Anne Bancroft as a terminally ill woman who asks her son, Gilbert, to help her fulfill her last wish: to meet Greta Garbo. As her son, played by Ron Silver, carries out his search for Garbo, he confronts his deteriorating relationship with his wife and develops an interest in a struggling actress.

The movie was written by Larry Grusin and also stars Carrie Fisher, Catherine Hicks and Steven Hill. Bancroft was nominated for a Golden Globe.

Other supporting roles are played by Howard Da Silva and Dorothy Loudon, as a down-on-his-luck paparazzo and his agent; Harvey Fierstein, as a gay man that Gilbert meets on the Fire Islandmarker ferry, and Hermione Gingold, a nearly senile actress who once worked with the elusive Garbo.

Broadway songwriter Betty Comden plays Garbo, and her writing partner Adolph Green has a cameo.

Greta Garbo's low, husky voice and Swedish accent was first heard on screen in Eugene O'Neill's Anna Christie (1930), which was publicized with the slogan "Garbo Talks."
