Those involved in the film remembered John Gilbert as having been the primary director on this film. Greta Garbo would refuse to continue filming unless he approved a scene. Only Edmund Goulding is credited as director in the final version. See more »
I just wanted to say that I really appreciated your review of "Love". I had no idea that Greta Garbo made two versions of Anna Karenina and it sounds like the first might be even better than the second. I haven't seen it yet but now I will surely keep an eye open for it on TCM. I liked how you touched on the fact that silent movies really emphasize actual acting and not just people talking. The fact that Garbo and Gilbert were in love in real life must make the film only that more passionate. I really just wanted to review your review. I don't know if that is the purpose of the form I am filling out. It is obvious that you are a real lover of films and it is always nice to know there is another one out there. You did a great and thorough job explaining why you enjoyed "Love".
