Queen Christina
Rated
Greta Garbo's portrayal of the strong willed Swedish monarch who abdicates and sails off across the boundless ocean (in one of cinema's most famous and dramatic last shots) is one of two that define her mature screen image (the other is the neurasthenic, reclusive prima donna in Grand Hotel). It's directed by Rouben Mamoulian with lustrous theatricality, and features the last major romantic role for her co-star, John Gilbert (on whom she insisted, and whose career was doomed less because his voice squeaked than because he drank and clashed with his bosses). The movie is full of gleaming pomp; grand, glacial rhythms; and the sort of ersatz royal pleasure the old studio system could excel in.
