Description by OLDIES.com:

"Long before the word charisma became a cliché, Garbo was its quintessence" (James Robert Parish and Ronald L. Bowers, The MGM Stock Company: The Golden Era). To generations of fans and critics, Greta Garbo is the screen's greatest actress, greatest beauty... and greatest mystery. The Swedish Sphinx conquered silents and talkies, and Wild Orchids showcases both her astonishing talent and her incomparable beauty. Garbo portrays Lillie Sterling, the neglected wife of an American businessman (Lewis Stone), who journeys into the exotic jungles of Java and into a steamy triangle of husband, wife and dashing plantation owner (Nils Asther). As passion flares, so does jealousy. Then the plantation owner and Lillie's husband embark on a tiger hunt...but the real prey may not be tigers.

Product Description:

This early silent film features Greta Garbo as the frustrated wife of a merchant who accompanies her husband to Java where she has an affair with a handsome prince. The film has a background music soundtrack and sound effects.

Plot Synopsis:

A silent romance set against the backdrop of picturesque Indonesia. A dashing Javanese prince sets his sights on the elegant, neglected wife of an American tea merchant. While entertaining the couple at his palace, the prince takes a break from hunting tigers to pursue his female guest.
