  Mata Hari: the name breathes mystery, intrigue and sexual allure. Who better to play the notorious World War I spy than Greta Garbo, the enigmatic, exquisite screen icon called The Swedish Sphinx - Garbo is mesmerizing as the dancer-turned-German secret agent in a wartime Paris seething with secrets and betrayal. The notable supporting cast includes Lionel Barrymore as a Russian general besotted with her, Lewis Stone as an icy master spy, and Ramon Novarro as a handsome aviator who wins the heart Mata Hari did not know she possessed. With the world at war, love was her weapon. And the only men she couldn't seduce were the 12 in the firing squad that ended her tragic and tumultuous life.

Comments:

From what I have seen this may be the worst film in the signature collection - a little preposterous to say the least.

The DVD quality is up to Warner's other standards - very grainy, good contrast, excellent subtitles, understandably weak audio, but not fatal, in this case as Hollywood was just turning the corner to talkies. Sharp image considering age and relatively bright with some usual flickering contrast in the beginning. The only extras is the trailer and I suspect some of the other DVDs in the boxset pack a little more punch in the extra department. It still stands to reason to be a decent buy at less than $100 for 10 discs - many of which are highly sought films. We will get to reviewing them when we can.
