directed by Rouben Mamoulian
USA 1933

 

  No one needs convincing of Garbo's mysterious, magical talent, her role as the 17th-century Swedish Queen Christina is a persuasive argument for her genius. While the rest of the cast flail around in search of a decent script, Garbo makes her character both regal and pitiful as she flees from the prospect of an arranged marriage only to encounter the Spanish envoy newly arrived to consolidate the union between the thrones. The film's highlight is the charmingly ambiguous scene in which the Ambassador (an inadequate Gilbert, who replaced Laurence Olivier during shooting) shares a room with the flippant youth. The rest is history.

Comments:

The image quality here is very weak due to the age of the print - it remains consistent throughout the marvelous film - very grainy, not very sharp, good contrast, excellent subtitles, understandably weak audio, but not fatal (fairly early Hollywood talkie). There is flickering contrast, mostly in the beginning. The only extras is the trailer and the film is the true value of this individual DVD - I suspect Warner did what they could aside from a full blown restoration. It is a shame it wasn't better preserved but still a wonderful film.
