"Queen Christina" (1933) - GRETA GARBO
Garbo plays Queen Christina of Sweden as a popular monarch who falls in love with a Spanish envoy and must choose between the throne and the man she loves. The scene at the inn where Christina goes around memorizing the room, was choreographed so meticulously that Greta Garbo performed the scene to a metronome. Watch for the jeweled gown that Christina wears when she receives Antonio at court -- The exhibit "Hollywood Costume" curated by Deborah Nadoolman, which was installed at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London in 2012 and later the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles in 2014, featured this gown. Directed by Rouben Mamoulian. Starring Greta Garbo, John Gilbert and Ian Keith. 1 hr 39 min.
