Greta Nissen's career took a nose dive with the advent of sound motion pictures. The transition to sound came quickly in 1929 and there was little time for actors and actresses who weren't prepared for the new medium. Greta's biggest problem was her thick Norwegian accent. If not for this flaw she might have become one of film's greatest early stars. My e-book chronicles her stage and film career.
