Flesh and the Devil by Clarence Brown was the North American film that turned Greta Garbo into the "Divine". She played a femme fatale, a devastating vamp capable of ruining masculine loyalties, but her erotism as very stylized. She starred together with John Glbert and in two famous scenes they reinvented the technique of kissing in front of the camera.
