garbo

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'old film star' is the definition.
The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.

'dress circle' is the wordplay.
'dress' becomes 'garb' (synonyms).
'circle' becomes 'O' (O is a circle).
'garb'+'o'='GARBO'

'seen in' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for garbo that I've seen before include "film-star", "Swedish-born actress", "Greta -, Swed. actress", "film star? Yes and no", "Famous film actress".)
