Blind Item #9 - Mr. X - Old Hollywood

These two foreign born acting legends, one of whom actually had a brief affair with this still living permanent A list mostly movie actor back in the day had the longest feud in Hollywood history. It all went back to when the slightly older, but less famous of the two had a torrid romance with the younger alliterate actress and then dumped her. The younger actress never forgave this and threatened to have the older actress killed of she ever tried to talk to the younger actress again.

Not surprising but they were alleged to be in the closet and once had an affair with each other allegedly.

Ooh I never knew this one. I have read a bout many same sex
relationships in old Hollywood but haven't heard about Greta Garbo being involved.

Greta used to bring her female lovers with her to Frank Sinatra's Palm Springs home because she knew he was incredibly trustworthy and discreet. While Greta would have sex in the pool, Frank and his staff would sit poolside drinking Jack Black (Daniels), chat and ignore them. Good times!

Rumors about Greta being gay have been around for years. I'll go for John Gilbert as the actor.

Oh wait, still living.. yeah Kirk it is.

Aren't Old Hollywood Blinds the best?!

@Amy!

You must be in your 20s or younger. There is a book called Hollywood Babylon & there used to be a tv show by that name.

Tony Curtis hosted Hollywood Babylon too. The old tv news show Hard Copy frequently used the book as a source. Hard Copy is on YouTube.
