QUEEN CHRISTINA and THE SONG OF SONGS

QUEEN CHRISTINA

(Rouben Mamoulian) As the cross-dressing 17th century Swedish queen, Greta Garbo renounces all for an impossible love (John Gilbert, the star’s ex-flame). Mamoulian instructed Garbo to empty her mind for the legendary final close-up. Approx. 99 min. 35mm.
2:55, 7:00

“Not only one of Greta Garbo’s finest performances, but one of her very best films… Erotic, romantic, and a feast for the eyes.”
– Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

“Garbo turns her character into a living entity… and glides through Mamoulian’s winding camera movements with grace, wit and beauty.”

“Dietrich is luminous in her first Hollywood film not directed by Josef von Sternberg.”
– Leonard Maltin

 

“Dietrich positively glows with demure innocence or malice aforethought as the need arises… and the whole thing has a glitteringly opulent beauty, sparked with an irresistible sense of the absurd.”
Time Out (London)
