Anna Christie

Along with the director and cinematographer, Garbo was nominated for an Oscar in her first 'talkie' role in this rivetting adaptation of Eugene O'Neill's play. Anna is a young Swedish immigrant who hasn't seen her father in 15 years. They are about to be reunited, and on the boat trip she meets a gruff sailor who falls for her hook, line and sinker. However Anna's past could destroy all her hopes of a bright future. A German-language version was filmed immediately after, using the same sets, by Belgian director Jacques Feyder; both versions appear on this disc.
