William H. Daniels

Cinematographer

“I didn't create a 'Garbo face'. I just did portraits of her I would have done for any star. My lighting for her was determined by the requirements of a scene...Garbo had natural long eyelashes and in certain moods I could throw the light down from quite high, and show the shadows of the eyelashes come down on the cheeks; it became a sort of trademark with her.”
