Among the guests were often seen Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, Gloria Vanderbilt , Marlene Dietrich and of course his close friend Greta Garbo.

Someone knew she was Garbo: among the others, the waiter-driver of Hauser and the art dealer Giovanni Panarello, whose shop Garbo often visited. But even if they knew her real identity, those people pretended they did not know who she was.
