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.
