Dir. Ernst Lubitsch (1939).
Garbo laughs was the sell-line and, not only that, she played the most beautiful Bolshevik in Hollywood historyor at least until Hedy Lamarr assumed the title role of Comrade X. Saucy and cynical, this archetypal anti-Communist comedy owes more to writer Billy Wilders touch than that of director Lubitsch.
Wednesdays-Fridays, 1:30 p.m. Starts: June 29. Continues through July 1, 2011
