NINOTCHKA

by Ernst Lubitsch
 

kanalPresented by Jean-Paul Ouellette

Ready to open my bluray of this hilarious Lubitsch classic. Garbo laughs! We've seen many great actresses finding their comedic sides: Barbara Stanwyck in "Ball of Fire" and Irene Dunne in "Theodora Goes Wild." But glowering drama queen Greta Garbo? Only Ernst Lubitsch with a script by Charles Brackett, Billy Wilder, and Walter Reisch could bring out Garbo's secret.

(1939) Only the royal suite at the grandest hotel in Paris has a safe large enough for the jewels of the Grand Duchess Swana. So the three Russians who have come to sell the jewels settle into the suite until a higher ranking official is dispatched to find out what is delaying the sale. She is Ninotchka, a no nonsense woman who fascinates Count Leon who had been the faithful retainer (gigolo) of the Grand Duchess. The Grand Duchess will give up all claim to the jewels if Ninotchka will fly away from the count. But can one count on a count?
