Facts about

During the "cigarette lighting" scene in the garden, the "match" cupped in Leo's hand is actually a very small carbon arc lamp built for the scene - very hot, very dangerous, but providing a remarkable visual effect.
One of the film's stars, Barbara Kent, and one of its writers, Frederica Sagor, lived to be over 100. Kent died on October 13, 2011 at the age of 103 whereas Sagor died on January 5, 2012 at the age of 111, making her one of the few supercentenarians well known for reasons other than longevity.
Director Clarence Brown was so overawed by the developing romance between Gilbert and Garbo that at the end of one particularly passionate scene he did not even call "cut," instead motioning the lighting and camera crews to stop filming. They withdrew from the set and, after a few hours, had dinner sent in.
