Turner Classic Movies shows this as two films:

Greta Garbo: The Temptress (1986)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

MGM produced documentary takes a look at the early life of Greta Garbo from her childhood up through her first three silent pictures. Running just at an hour, this first of a two part documentary gets pretty boring during the first part due in part to the boring narration, which doesn't help anything. Things start to pick up as Garbo rises to fame.

Greta Garbo: The Clown (1986)

** (out of 4)

Part two of the MGM produced documentary takes a look at Garbo's sound films. It looks like this one here would have been more interesting but it's not. The sound films are barely covered and nothing much is really said about anything.
