(1939) dir Ernst Lubitsch w/Greta Garbo, Melvyn Douglas, Ina Claire, Bela Lugosi, Sig Ruman, Felix Bressart, Alexander Grenach, Gregory Gaye [110 min]
The only choice for a director to usher the great Greta Garbo into the world of comedy was obviously Ernst Lubitsch. Esteemed for his deft comedic touch delivered with graceful modernity, Lubitsch worked from a screenplay by his protégée, the masterful Billy Wilder (Some Like It Hot) to create this political satire that sets a group of austere Russian communists against Paris-in-the-Springtime capitalism and frivolity to create a great romp.
