2012 Movie #134 - Ninotchka (1939)
I’m slowly working my way through the Ernst Lubitsch catalog after my revelatory experience watching To Be Or Not To Be. Ninotchka is considered one of his best, and I have to agree. The film was delightful, and has one of the best on-screen character transformations I’ve seen in Greta Garbo’s performance as Ninotchka.

The only sad thing about watching a film like Ninotchka is realizing just how crappy modern romantic-comedies have become. High-res
