(Queen Christina, Usa 1933 b/n, 100') Rouben Mamoulian. Con Greta Garbo, John Gilbert , Lan Keith, Lewis Stone, Elizabeth Young, Reginald Owen. * La regina Cristina di Svezia (Garbo), durante una sortita in cui si traveste da paggio, si innamora dell'ambasciatore di Spagna (Gilbert): per lui rinuncia al trono, ma un malvagio pretendente si mette di mezzo, e non le resta che l'esilio e la solitudine. Un personaggio insieme reticente e passionale, creato apposta per la Garbo, che si scelse di persona il regista, e rifiutò partner come Laurence Oliver, Franchot Tone e Leslie Howard prima di accettare Gilbert ("uno stupendo comprimario, mai in grado di offuscare la luce dell'attrice"). Da antologia il movimento di macchina del finale, che passa dal totale al primissimo piano della Garbo (alla quale il regista aveva detto di non pensare a nulla, perchè sul suo volto si potesse leggere la più vasta gamma di espressioni).
