A season of feature films starring Hollywood's greatest star in her most famous roles. starring Greta Garbo with John Gilbert, Ian Keith, Lewis Stone, Elizabeth Young, C. Aubrey Smith
This delightful romantic drama about the 17th-century Swedish monarch Queen Christina, who, dressed in men's clothes, finds herself sharing a room in a remote village inn with a handsome Spanish nobleman, was an ideal vehicle for Garbo. And it gave John Gilbert - her leading man of the silent era - a chance to show that he could still excel in the role of a romantic hero.
