Rouben Mamoulian

Queen Christina

99' - 1933 - Drama, Biography, Romance - Dialogue: Spanish, English
Director: Rouben Mamoulian Composer: Herbert Stothart With: Greta Garbo, John Gilbert, Ian Keith
Garbo, as the title character, is a decisive queen, ruling Sweden with wisdom and compassion. Her former lover, Magnus (Ian Keith), attempts to arrange a marriage between Garbo and a dashing prince (Reginald Owen), but she will have nothing to do with political unions. Sweden has been waging a bloody war of attrition. Garbo is elated when she manages to obtain a peace treaty. Then, while out riding, she encounters Don Antonio De la Prada (Gilbert), the newly appointed ambassador of Spain. Intrigued by the handsome, gallant Spaniard, Garbo decides to discover his real nature by disguising herself as a male.
