CGiii Comment

"In the gay half-world of Paris..."

Was life ever this deliciously decadent?

Has movie-making ever been as good as this?

Garbo deserved the title: The Great.

Her performance is quite unlike anything else - especially compared to those of her peers - she was, unquestionably, peerless.

Age has given this film time for rumination, Garbo's sexuality is an obvious component to her skill - amid the campness, Garbo flirts and pouts and actually acts - few have done it so well.

The(ir) Blurb...

An attractive woman going by the name Marguerite lives in Paris and is a courtesan, kept by the rich aristocrat Baron de Varville. When the handsome young Armand sees her for the first time, he immediately falls in love. Camille is not so easy as to fall for his charms immediately. She lives a comfortable life, after all. As she comes to have feelings for him, Armand's father intervenes asking her not to cast a shadow on his son's future prospects and she agrees. In her greatest time of need however, the loving Armand returns to her.
