1939: Hollywood's Greatest YearRepertory Series Archive


Buy Tickets

(1939) dir Ernst Lubitsch w/Greta Garbo, Melvyn Douglas, Ina Claire, Bela Lugosi [110 min; 35mm]
1939 was the year that Garbo smiled – and who wouldn’t when in the hands of a master like Lubitsch and his protégé Billy Wilder (who wrote the script). This political satire sets a group of austere Russian communists against Paris-in-the-Springtime capitalism and frivolity to create a great romp.

“NINOTCHKA is one of the sprightliest comedies of the year, a gay and impertinent and malicious show which never pulls its punch lines.” – Frank S. Nugent, The New York Times
