Anna Christie, 14 April 2000
Author: Janos Smal (jsmal@osi.hu) from Budapest, Hungary

A woman with a past returns to her alcoholic father living on a shabby boat and falls in love with a sailor.

A deliberately grim movie gained fame as Garbo's first talkie (revealing her warm, silky deep voice), and was simultaneously made in Germany - from a well-known O'Neill play. This version now seems pretty stilted and shows the most typical mistakes of early talkies, but full of vivid moments of great power, full-blooded performances (especially the genial interplay between Garbo and Dressler)and the rare Hollywood quality of gritty realism.
