Trivia

Despite the common belief that the happy ending was made for American audiences and the tragic ending was for others, The New York Times review (for the Embassy Theater premiere of the movie in New York on 29 November 1927) reports that the film had the tragic ending. The AFI Catalog reports the tragic ending for the movie in its summary and lists the alternate happy ending in a note. See more »

Not as good as other Garbo-Gilbert films
29 July 2001 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

Slow-moving, silent version of Tolstoy's classic Anna Karenina, stars Garbo as a married socialite who has an affair with soldier Gilbert. This followed shortly after the duo made Flesh and the Devil, but it is not a worthy follow-up. There are two endings-one happy and one sad. Remade by Garbo in 1935. Only merits 2 stars in my book.
