Greta Nissen - Framed Picture - 12" x 16"
Greta Nissen was a Norwegian-born American film and stage actress.
Greta was discovered by film producer Jesse L. Lasky of Paramount Pictures, and would appear in more than twenty films.
In 1933, she moved to England. Her film career ended in the mid-1930s after she had appeared in a few British films. In 1937 she retired from movie acting altogether.
Greta was the original choice for leading lady in Hell's Angels (1930), an epic film made by Howard Hughes. She lost the part due to her strong Norwegian accent when the movie was remade to include sound.
