Dumas’ stage version of his novel The Lady of the Camellias was the first of countless adaptations; this is surely one of the finest on film. Garbo gives her all as the Parisian courtesan, kept by a baron but loved by another while she battles with consumption. MGM supplied the sumptuous sets and costumes, William Daniels’ the lustrous camerawork, Cukor the refined direction.
