“Garbo laughs!” rejoiced the poster upon the release of Ernst Lubitsch’s comedy NINOTCHKA in 1939. In a savvy bit of casting, cool and composed diva Greta Garbo stars as an idealistic, uptight Russian delegate who gets sent to Paris – and promptly succumbs to the many temptations the City of Light has to offer: Champagne, parties, joie de vivre – and love.
The plot for NINOTCHKA is based on a brilliant 1937 poolside pitch by one Melchior Lengyel: “Russian girl saturated with Bolshevist ideals goes to (…) Paris. She meets romance and has an uproarious good time. Capitalism not so bad, after all.”
