Garbo is a 1992 Australian comedy film directed by Ron Cobb. It was written by and starring the Australian comedians Neill Gladwin and Steve Kearney; Max Cullen also stars. Filmed in Melbourne, the story focuses on two incompetent Australian garbagemen (garbos in Australian slang) who admire Greta Garbo and have to compete with a super-efficient new outfit.[2]

The Celtic punk band The Pogues recorded a song, "In and Out," for the film's soundtrack.[3] Kate Ceberano and Yothu Yindi also contributed music for the film.[4]
