Queen Christina by Rouben Mammalian (U.S., 1933)

In 1933, MGM lured Greta Garbo back from Sweden with $250,000 a picture and the green light for her pet project, Queen Christina. Delving into historic Swedish castles, tumbling with antiquity and mellow in memories of bygone glory, “Greta Garbo in person” researched the film, the Los Angeles Times reported.

In Queen Christina, Garbo explores the pains and pleasures of crossing between nations, genders, and sexualities, evoking, in her famous gaze beyond the horizon, “nostalgia for places one has never seen.”
