    This film will definitely break your heart. Garbo is outstanding here as the socialite who only tries to do good when she wants to clear up the debts her husband left her with. Her lifelong love, played by John Gilbert, marries but still holds the torch of Garbo. His wife, realizing this, tells him to go to Garbo's side when Garbo becomes very ill. It finally wakes him up as to what a wonderful woman his wife is. What a shame Gilbert's voice was such that he did not thrive when talking pictures came about, as he was a superb actor and dashingly handsome. He was only 38 when he died and many believe he would have made a comeback starring with Marlene Dietrich in a film named "Desire."

    Garbo and Gilbert, what a couple! I was hooked from the beginning. Fairbanks, Jr was over the top (in a good way). The clothes, the settings, beautiful. Please put this out on DVD. Great for watching on a lazy Sunday afternoon .

  • Excellent!

  • No happy ending for these two

    The film has it all: lost love; alcoholism; theft; illness; and suicide. It's one of the most tortured romances ever on screen, something that sort of becomes a Garbo specialty on screen. Still, you can't help but think the melodrama is a little over-ripe and the film's story could definitely use a bit of comic relief. After all, they're not doing a Shakespearean tragedy. The best part of this production: the gowns by Adrian; Cedric Gibbons' glorious set design; and Clarence Brown's capable direction. It's a big budget, A-list silent feature; and it shows you what the studios (MGM in particular) were able to churn out on a good day in the 1920s.

  • A Good Movie

    A good movie but you can see that the Garbo and Gilbert's love has toned down tremendously. But I liked it Garbo and Gilbert are great together anyway and this shows they still can be that passionate couple they were in the Flesh and the devil.
