Anna Karenina ★★★½ 1935

Cinematic Tolstoy with Garbo as sad, moody, married Anna willing to give up everything to be near Vronsky (March), the cavalry officer she's obsessed with. And since it's Russian, expect tragedy. A classic Garbo vehicle with March and Rathbone (as the cuckhold husband) providing excellent support. Interestingly, a remake of the Garbo and John Gilbert silent, “Love.” 85m/B VHS, DVD . Greta Garbo, Fredric March, Freddie Bartholomew, Maureen O'Sullivan, May Robson, Basil Rathbone, Reginald Owen, Reginald Denny; D: Clarence Brown; W: S.N. Behrman, Clemence Dane, Salka Viertel; C: William H. Daniels; M: Herbert Stothart. N.Y. Film Critics '35: Actress (Garbo).
