New York, December 3 (ANI): Greta Garbo - the legendarily reclusive actress who refused to sign autographs or give interviews - would have had "mixed feelings" if she knew about the auction next month of 800 of her possessions, according to her great-nephew Derek Reisfield.

But Reisfield was heard saying aboard the Queen Mary 2, where he previewed some auction items, that Garbo's family views the auction as a way to show what she was really like - especially her sense of humor that wasn't seen by her adoring public, the New York Post reported.

Among more whimsical possessions to be sold on Dec. 14-15 by Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills are skis, leather driving caps, caviar spoons, swimsuits, a cocktail shaker engraved with the initials "GG" in Garbo's handwriting and holiday decorations including a blow-up plastic snowman. (ANI)
