She is Ninotchka, a no nonsense woman who fascinates Count Leon who had been the faithful retainer of the Grand Duchess. Sig Ruman, Felix Breassart and Alexander Granach are fantastic as those three Russians. This movie marked Wilder his first Academy Award nomination. Ernst Lubitsch as director accompanied by his friend Billy Wilder as screenwriter gave us entertainment and satire in her best elegant form.
The Grand Duchess will give up all claim to the jewels if Ninotchka will fly away from the count. In Ninotchka Greta Garbo plays a serious Russian Nina Yakushova who falls in love in Paris. The man is Count Leon d' Algout, played by Melvyn Douglas. This movie is filled with laughter and great emotions. The story of four Soviet spies and their antics in the France capital is the ultimate depiction of the atmosphere in Europe in the shadow of the upcoming war.
The role gained her a third Academy Award nomination.After working exclusively in dramatic films, Garbo turned to comedy with Ninotchka (1939), which earned her a fourth Academy Award nomination, and Two-Faced Woman (1941).Greta Garbo was a sludgey emotive hardcore band from st. They existed only from late 2003 - mid 2004, but managed three releases and a slew of shows.They played their last show in August 2004 with The Five Year Plan! Many of Garbo's films, from her first, Torrent in 1926, to her last, 1941's Two-Faced Woman, were sensational hits, and all but three were profitable.
Garbo was nominated four times for an Academy Award and received an honorary one in 1954 for her "unforgettable screen performances".
Renowned for her beauty, Garbo nonetheless remained an object of fascination.
Her face was considered by photographic experts to be unique and "quite perfect", according to Sven Broman, author of the biography "Conversations with Greta"."The distance between her eyes, the height of her forehead, her mouth, her whole creation, was divine," he wrote.
To my opinion, someone who want to introduce himself with this ' Golden Age' of Hollywood cinema can easily be exposed by this film.
If anyone believes that Greta Garbo could not do comedy, then watch this movie.
The correspondence laid bare the inescapable unease that pervaded her life, including her "loneliness, depression, and ill-health, her constant homesickness and love of the Swedish countryside," according to Sotheby's.
