As You Desire Me ★★★ 1932

Garbo plays an amnesia victim who returns to a husband she doesn't even remember after an abusive relationship with a novelist. An interesting, if not down-right bizarre movie, due to the pairing of the great Garbo and the intriguing von Stroheim. An adaption of Luigi Pirandello's play. 71m/B VHS . Greta Garbo, Melvyn Douglas, Erich von Stroheim, Owen Moore, Hedda Hopper; D: George Fitzmaurice.
