The Kiss is a 1929 American silent drama film from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer directed by Jacques Feyder and starring Greta Garbo, Conrad Nagel and Lew Ayres in his first feature film. The film is known for being both MGM's and Greta Garbo's last silent film. It was also the last such film for Conrad Nagel.
