HALL OF FAMEon January 4, 2006
The magic touch of director Ernst Lubitsch is all over this classic romantic comedy, Greta Garbo's second-last film, about an icy Russian Communist agent sent on business to the fair city of Paris, but who ends up falling hook line and sinker for the decadent delights that only Paris can provide.

Ninotchka (Greta Garbo) is an uptight model of Communism in action. Her gradual transformation from rigid reformist to carefree Parisian socialite is a delight to behold. The script (by Billy Wilder, Charles Bracket and Walter Reisch) is crisp and filled with sparkle and wit. Greta Garbo, in her only Hollywood comedy role (if you don't count the disastrous TWO FACED WOMAN), glows. After years of being typecast in dramatic and (often) melodramatic roles. NINOTCHKA allowed Garbo to play both comedy and drama, as her character evolves during the story. Garbo's longtime costume designer Adrian decked Garbo out in some of her most beautiful gowns, and the score by Werner R. Heymann is outstanding. With Melvyn Douglas, Ina Claire, Bela Lugosi, Sig Ruman and Felix Bressart.

Warner's new DVD (part of the Greta Garbo Signature Collection) sadly skimps in the extra features department (only the trailer is included), but for fans of the film, and collectors of the Hollywood classics, this disc is a good purchase.
