Dir. Rouben Mamoulian

US 1933 | Black & white | 100 mins | Drama | Hollywood Classics

Cast: Greta Garbo, John Gilbert, Ian Keith, Lewis Stone

‘This is a highly fascinating film to revisit. It gives you the essential Garbo – enigmatic to the last shot of the self-exiled Swedish queen abdicating her throne for love and setting sail with the expressionless face that Mamoulian commanded her to wear, so that filmgoers projected their own thoughts on to her ‘perfect blankness’… Garbo was the most instinctual film actress ever:Queen Christina is her showcase.’ – Evening Standard, 1998

Available on: 35mm
