U.S., 1927
Directed by Clarence Brown
Starring Greta Garbo, John Gilbert, Lars Hanson, Barbara Kent.
35mm. Approx. 112 min.

Introduction by Robert Gottlieb, author of Garbo, recorded especially for this screening.

Husband Lars Hanson and lover John Gilbert duel in silhouette at dawn over Garbo – with a chilling conclusion. Garbo’s first picture with her favorite director and co-star rocketed to the top of MGM’s B.O. charts and began a legendary on- and off-screen love affair.

Plus a 9-minute fragment from Victor Sjöstrom’s The Divine Woman (1928), the only of Garbo’s films not to survive in its entirety. Introduced by Robert Gottlieb via recorded Zoom.
