♪ Live piano accompaniment by Steve Sterner
(1926, Clarence Brown) Husband Lars Hanson and lover John Gilbert duel in a silhouette at dawn over Greta Garbo – with a chilling conclusion. Greta 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. 35mm. Approx. 112 min.
“Garbo was a blissfully beautiful 21 at the time, and no other actress went at the bodies of her leading men the way she did.”
– Pauline Kael
