The Girls: Sappho Goes To Hollywood is a 2000 book by Diana McLellan that speculates on a romance between Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich. The Observer found it "purely speculative" and "uncorroborated". Kirkus found it "lively". Publishers Weekly was more approving, saying McLellan was able to "bring a broader context and new sense of scholarship to the subject". The Houston Chronicle praised "exhaustive" research and found the book far from salacious. It was nominated in the Lesbian Studies category for the 13th Lambda Literary Awards.
