Video from the silent film:Torrent(1926). Pictures of Greta Garbo .

Torrent (1926). Romantic/drama/silent film, directed by Monta Bell. Based on a novel by Vicente Blasco Ibanez.

Torrent was the first American film starring Swedish actress Greta Garbo. The film also starred Ricardo Cortez.

The title refers to a flood that occurs in the small town where most of the action takes place, which brings the couple together.

Fun fact:

Joel McCrea doubled for Greta Garbo in a horse-riding scene.
