Without cg and vfx I wouldn't have seen her or googled who she is.

Cool commercial!

If that inspires you to learn more about the history of film, here are some links I can recommend:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinema_of_Russia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Film_editing

And another great female figure who was one of the most prominent and powerful woman figures in Hollywood. Also one of the first true independents:

This is an area of great interest to me over the years, it seems all the time I am learning something "I should have known".

Billy Wilder would say that she was nothing to look at in real life, just a little girl, but on film she had that thing that makes someone a star, he said similar about Monroe as well.

Film legends are fun to once and a while look in too, a different kind of breed at that time maybe, no current filmstar in the latest decades shows up in this legends list though.

mostly it is all about movie carisma and external beauty I would say, some of those old time acresses could just sit with a blank face and let the audience fill in the emotions themself, like Garbo.
combined with great lighting and photo and the story itself, they could acheive Iconic fame
I wouldn´t say in my taste that katherine hepburn belongs to the most beautiful actess, nevertheless...one heck of an actress that probably justifies here top place.

Note-trivia...did you know that Greta Garbo will be featured on the print of the new Swedish 100 crown bills that will be released 2014-2015, replacing our beloved nature researcher

Is this composited from existing footage or a 3d model of her?

some parts look 3d ..especially in the beginning, but some don´t.

Looks like they used a double look alike to capture performances, combined with cg model scan and reference photos maybe?

Actors from that time had no idea, now I think they need to sign some sort of Agreement or non agreement to the use of your face in future.
