Editorial Reviews

Life in 1847 Paris is as spirited as champagne and as unforgiving as the gray morning after. In gambling dens and lavish soirees, men of means exert their wills and women turned courtesans exult in pleasure. One such woman is Marguerite Gautier (Greta Garbo), the Camille of this sumptuous romance tale based on the enduring Alexandre Dumas story. Garbo's aloof mystique and alabaster beauty illuminate this George Cukor-directed film featuring what many call her finest performance. Her Camille is a movie paragon of true love found (in suitor Armand Duval, memorably played by Robert Taylor), then sacrificed for a greater good. Garbo earned an Academy Award nomination and the New York Film Critics Best Actress Award for her memorable work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Timeless Love Story - a Masterpiece August 19, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I have seen many, many classic movies. I have seen the best performances of the best movie stars and I have seen all of the most respected classic films. None come close to Camille, the best movie ever made! I'm not kidding, either. This film is pure magic. The screenplay is brilliant and flawless. The romantic lines will last in your memory just as long as the beautiful images. And there are many unforgettable scenes.. Garbo drops her fan as she walks down the staircase (in a magnificent Adrian gown), as she sees the man she loves. The scene where Robert Taylor throws his money at the woman he can't have. And the single best scene in motion picture history..Garbo's legendary and tearjerking death scene. The first time I saw this movie, the end made me cry uncontrollably for half an hour. Just as magnificent are the heartfelt performances by Garbo and Robert Taylor, who is sensitive and tender, as his character should be. Garbo is breathtaking in her best role. Her lines are perfectly blended with her character, such as when she is on her deathbed and whispers, "If you can't save me, how can a doctor?" or "My heart isn't used to being happy." As they are falling in love, the lines are absolutely wonderful, such as when Taylor tells Garbo his parents were married 30 years and Garbo says, sadly, "Nobody could ever love me 30 years." People could laugh at this movie and say it is sentimental, but that just indicates lack of heart. I have never seen a movie without a sentimental script that ever inspired me to write. This movie inspired me in every way.. It inspires us to be more compassionate towards each other and live to love. This is the most effective love story ever told, and this 63 year-old film still breathes life into a 150 year-old story. Why? Because it is timeless. A story is only old if the artists think so, but this film is a masterpiece. It will always be my favorite movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Garbo's unforgettable classic October 22, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Every actor or actress who has achieved success in Hollywood tends to have one film that is their "signature" part and in Greta Garbo's instance that role would have to be her tragic heroine Marguerite Gautier in the MGM classic "Camille'.
This film was, and is one of the benchmarks for how a classic movie should be put together. Flawless attention to detail, a great romantic story, exquisite performances by all concerned, a sumptous production and a fine literary source. All these elements successively combine here to make a screen masterpiece that has moved, charmed and entertained movie goers for generations. Indeed "Camille" is probably the best known and most often revived of all of Greta Garbo's great body of work which includes such masterpieces as , "Grand Hotel", "Mata Hari", "Queen Christina", and "Ninotchka".
Greta Garbo, the mysterious, and reclusive MGM star here proves yet again what a stunning actress she can be when given material worthy of her talents. Based on the tragic story by Alexandre Dumas of "The Lady of the Camellias", "Camille" tells the story of Marguerite Gautier a famous 19th Century courtesan in Paris who lives by her beauty and the support of those men who can pay for it. The tragedy of her situation is that when life means very little to her and she finds herself slowly dying of consumption, she meets the love of her life the young and penniless gentlemen Armand who loves her for herself and not because of the charms she can offer. Armand offers her a life of genuine love and purpose which is missing in her gilded Parisian life among her superficial, pleasure loving friends and as the mistress of the grim and domineering Baron de Varville who views her as his personal plaything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime and unforgettable June 10, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
"Camille" is that rare occurance in movies where the story, director, star, and studio are all working in sync. The result is one of the finest romantic dramas of all time.
"Camille" is based on Alexandre Dumas tragic story of a tubercular Parisian courtesan, Marguerite, who sacrifices all for true love.
George Cukor, the director, proved yet again that he is the consummate actor's director. With impeccable taste and skill, he consistently brought out the best in the most gifted actors such as Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Judy Garland, Cary Grant, and Audrey Hepburn to name a few.
And with Greta Garbo as the star of "Camille", Cukor elicited one of the best performances in movie history. You are never aware of Garbo acting. She simply becomes Marguerite, the seemingly light-hearted, yet world-weary courtesan whose beauty and sexual favors she offers to wealthy men. Those men in turn use her and then pay her.
That is Marguerite's means of survival. She is not educated or job-skilled but she is seductive to men, and she can capitalize upon that.
Marguerite has never known true and unselfish love until she meets Armand Duvall, a young and principled man who falls in love with her at first sight. He is earnestly played by a very handsome and youthful Robert Taylor.
Armand is finally introduced to Marguerite by a mutual friend.
Unbeknownst to Marguerite, Armand has visted her home for several months while she was convalescing from her tuberculosis. He would visit with Marguerite's devoted housekeeper Nanine everyday to find out if Marguerite's health was improving. He truly cared about her well-being.
And even though Marguerite always has plenty of "friends" to party with, these so-called "friends" are mostly shallow and opportunistic.
