Thought of the Day
Greta Garbo in Ninotchka
Labels: Greta Garbo
OK. So last night (Thursday) I was channel surfing during a comercial in The Daily Show and I went to TMC and saw the final scene in Ninotchka in which Greta Garbo receives a three page letter that has been censored completely. Nothing except Dear Ninotchka and "Yours Leon" remain. (Count Leon Daiga that is; retainer of the Grand Duchess played by Melvyn Douglas.)
Then Sig Rumann, Ble Lugosi, and Felix Bressart thank Greta Garbo for feeding themn dinner ans as they leave, one of them--Felix Bressart I think--says: "They can never censor our memories."
They leave; Greta Grabo puts her head in her hands; fade to black.
