A Touch of Lubitsch
United States | 1939 | Ernst Lubitsch
“Garbo laughs” (or so proclaimed the original ads) in this celebrated Lubitsch comedy starring Greta Garbo and co-written by Billy Wilder. Prior to cracking up, Garbo is a severe, no-nonsense Soviet agent who has been sent to Paris to supervise the sale of some valuable jewels for her government. While there she falls for a debonair Western playboy (Melvyn Douglas) who represents everything she hates. With Bela Lugosi.
