Aristotle Onassis and Friends on Shore of Island Retreat

Aristotle Onassis & Greta Garbo arriving

16 Jul 1955, Isle of Capri, Italy — Here’s the international set in a nutshell. On the small boat dock jostling one another are such celebrities as Swedish-born, introverted Greta Garbo, wearing slacks and bending over to greet British-born, extroverted singer Gracie Fields, wearing a bathing suit, while Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, (2nd male from left), and Garbo’s companion on this junket, George Schlee, (third male from left), are present for an experience on the Onassis yacht, to be guests of Miss Fields at her villa on Capri.
