Greta Garbo in and as Mata Hari (1931)

Mata Hari, a Dutch oriental dancer who spent some years in Indonesia, was arrested on being a German spy during World War I and executed by the French in 1917, though the charge has never been proved. Loosely based on her real-life story and more speculations, the film Mata Hari (1931) was made which was the greatest hit of Greta Garbo's career and MGM's biggest hit of that year.
