About the Event

This 1935 film version of Tolstoy’s tragic tale of passion, revenge and social status in 19th-century Imperial Russia stars Greta Garbo as Anna, Fredric Marsh as Count Vronksy and a pre-Sherlock Holmes Basil Rathbone as Karenin. Dripping with the opulence of MGM's golden age, legendary producer David O. Selznick spared no expense. This version was considered a "neat and faithful" adaptation by critics of the day. More than 80 years later, it has achieved cult classic status as a master class in scenery chewing courtesy of Garbo and Rathbone.
