A Great Classic Gem of a FILM for all Future Generations!!
There is nothing sluggish or dated about this film or the great actors. Greta Garbo was a true Classic sex symbol and great actress of the Golden Era of Films! Her Classic films are studied in many drama departments of our finest Universities. Greta Garbo(Yvonne Valbert),"Conquest",'37, portrayed a woman who had many lovers over the years of her life and who fell deeply in love with a much younger man, whom you are led to believe took his virginity away from him. Robert Montgomery(Andre Mantell),"Lady in the Lake",'47, was a student and very inexperienced, however, he was charmed by the flirting of Yvonne. This is a very powerful love story which never grows old, the ending was well written and I am sure this ending was the same for many people in the same situation unfortunately!
